The contribution analyses recent Italian employment dynamics using non-standard territorial classifications obtained as an aggregation of functional geographies: Local Labour Market Areas (LLMAs). The non-standard classifications used, proposed by Istat, are socio- demographic, by cultural vocation and according to the prevailing productive specialization. The aim is to ascertain whether these territorial perspectives allow spatial continuity and discontinuity to emerge in the dynamics of the labour market, which would otherwise be "entangled" in the classic administrative divisions. The observation period is 2008-2017, treated in two sub-periods: 2008-2013 and 2014-2017 (pre- and post-crisis). The results obtained show the importance of approaching new territorial classifications for the study of socio-economic phenomena that allow to go beyond the results that normally emerge using "classic" administrative geographies.
