The article starts by noting that community studies now seem an outdated kind of sociological research. The first part will examine the reasons for this loss of interest, linking it to the transformations that occurred in recent decades in the process of urbanization on a global scale. The second part will introduce some considerations that explain the conditions under which the study of individual territorial entities may also be relevant in the contemporary urban sociology. Such studies should focus not so much on the description of the social characteristics of specific communities, but rather on the analysis of the territorial capital and projects present in them.
Keywords: Community, urbanization, projects, territory, sociology, individuality.
