Are Alpine cities special? Perhaps not. Though they are confronted with particular difficulties such as the topology, they are also increasingly obliged to deal with the mechanisms of a global economy. For the time being, the agenda is full steam ahead with periurbanisation and competition with the major European cities. As for the future, that is still up in the air, but major amounts of imagination will be required.
