I villaggi rurali fascisti di Potenza
- Rural villages,
- Urban development
The question of rural villages of Potenza has its roots in the early nineteenth century, involving the urban bourgeoisie in the restoration of the historic center with the displacement of peasants. In the Fascist era, then, the recovery of this policy together with the rural and industrial development programs of the city, led to a new program of construction of rural and mixed (workers/peasants) villages. This operation accentuated the ancient social separation between the bourgeoisie and peasants and between them and the workers also on the spatial plane, and favored the political and social control by the ruling classes, within consolidated mental and social models.
