In the season of "restarting" that we are living, the biggest mistake would be to imagine that - coming out of the tunnel of the crisis - everything can go back to the way it was before. In reality, many things have already changed and are changing, not only because of the traumatic experience made from 2019 to today, but also because of the strength of the technological and environmental transition underway. A transition that is directing our business and life models towards new forms, consistent with the emerging paradigm: the digital capitalism of networked knowledge. A capitalism in which the role of the territories changes radically with respect to the past, because - with the reduction of distances achieved by the digital network - physical proximity must be integrated with virtual proximity (which uses remote connection), bringing together the local scale with the metropolitan and global scale. This fundamental change makes it necessary to invest in the future and take risks that not everyone is able or willing to take on. In addition, territories must re-invent their identity in order to assume an attractive role in the extended supply chains with which they organize their own value generation. This requires intervention policies and shared investment strategies equipped with vision, in order to go beyond the horizon of passive valorization of resources and identities inherited from the past.
