Abstract

Bari from region-city to tourist-city The goal of this contribution is to show how in recent decades the vocation of the city of Bari has changed. Until the 50s of the last century the Bari bourgeoisie was characterized by its being a productive class with its feets sunk into the earth. Its function was to market the agricoltural resources produced in Puglia and, therefore, it appeares as the real capital of the regional territory. Between the end of the 50s and the 60s construction activity and industrial development supported by public interventions prevailed. Until the 1980s ,the city’s economy was, however, governed by an active and autonomous entrepreneurial activity. The years of Bari to drink or of Bari as the Milan of the south. But it was in the 1990 that the characteristies of the city probably coinciding with the end of the first Republic changed. This is evidenced by the same progressive change in the morphology of the city center that from being a place of very elegant shops, where the whol eregion came to make its purchases, is progressively occupied-especially in recent years-by the tables of the Bars. The same requalification of old Bari ( Urban plan ) promotes the movida. The identification of productive sectors of material goods remains outstanding. The wealth of Bari – once tied to the territory – seems ,today, to be more volatile, we cannot be satisfied with a Bari that has ‘’become a tourist city’’ . To this end, we need to give a stronger economic base to the growth of the city. The political system must commit itself to creating a neww economy centred on the growth of thecnological skills. It must be seen as a place of direction for productivity and must promote the development of research which can be applied to economic growth. Only for this route Bari will be able to give a solid basis to its production of material goods and escape the trap of an economy dependent on tourist consumption.
