The 60% of the Italian territory is represented by the so-called Shrinking Areas, which since the second post-war period have been subject to a strong process of marginalisation com-pared to urban centers. The gradual abandonment of these areas and the more recent reloca-tion of migrant reception to remote areas have contributed to the repopulation of these territo-ries by immigrants and asylum seekers. Starting from a brief analysis of the main national policies on shrinking areas and immigration, the essay intends to argue how it is possible to overcome territorial polarisations and social dichotomies through new narratives and sustain-able forms of co-habitation. The investigation will focus on how the regeneration of shrinking areas can be linked to the presence of migrants and asylum seekers, generating spaces for in-teraction and social innovation, as demonstrated by the Welcoming Spaces and IT.A.CÀ pro-jects, active in the national territory.
