One of the most complex issues in urban and regional development is the transformation of the historic spatial patterns of urban containment into new multi-centered chains of urbanization at metropolitan level of scale. This spatial reorganization is not simply a new extension of the existing urban territory but reflects the structural change of social and economic activities in the network society. The organization of interconnectivity in the emergent regional and interregional networks of urbanity requires new policy strategies in a context of multi-level governance.
