This paper proposes a redefinition of the spatial coordinates of experience as a scenario within which social interaction and communication can be interpreted. Putting aside the idea of fragmentation, the concept adopted in describing the ongoing changes affecting the spatial dimension is ‘globalisation’. This paradigm concerns, first of all, the dynamics of globality, redefined here in terms of an interpretive hypothesis which can be associated with an idea of continuity and multicentricity of reciprocal influences, rather than a trend of homogenisation, or explosion of differences. The second logic referring to the dimension of globalisation is that of aspatiality: space does not disappear, but is transformed and more complex, highlighting new ‘social stages’ and endowing the local with a permeable dimension, which can be redefined in relation to what lies outside. Thus worlds are linked through relations that no longer have the stable and organised character of a map. Indeed, the third trend related to globalisation is the existence of a network structure: what defines and gives meaning to the contemporary spatial dimension is the network of relations traced by the subjects. The network is the paradigm of respatialisation not only in terms of information technology but also in everyday life, where experience is built up by untying and weawing in social relations, with a continuous movement through time and space.
