The research aims to investigate socio-spatial inequalities by observing them through the lens of the daily mobility of the inhabitants of an inner area. In this way, it is possible to observe both the spatial organization and the distribution of services and resources on the territory, but also the flows organization of both the national and local institutions. Often the difficulty of organizing a public transport offer able to connect the marginal territories with the neighboring ones is mentioned, but the hyper-mobility to which the inhabitants of these areas are obliged is rarely questioned, instead, it is considered a fundamental resource. The research aims to study these two aspects, investigating the perceptions and re-elaborations of the inhabitants of the territory, in order to highlight the spread of space representations throughout the territory.
