This paper deals with an empirical research carried out in a well known residential and commercial settlement located near Casalecchio (Bologna). The methods and research techniques drawn from the school of Chicago, have focused on the contact with the people who live in and make use of this "city within the city", investigating their dreams and expectations. This was done following the path of periurban evolution studies, and the works of such urban sociologists as G. Martinotti and A. Detragiache. With reference to a recent work by A. Petrillo, we have then investigated the link between the CIDs and the Privatopias, highlighting on the one hand their utopia concerning safety, good neighbourhood relations and quality of life, and on the other hand the inevitable implications of involution and isolation from the outer society.
