Individual Contacts, Collective Patterns. Prato 1975-97, a story of interactions.

By Guido Fioretti

Abstract

This article presents an agent-based model of an Italian textile district where thousands of small firms specialise in particular phases of fabrics production. It is an empirical model that reconstructs the communications between firms when they arrange production chains. In their turn, production chains reflect into the pattern of traffic in the geographical areas where the district extends.Agent-based models, industrial clusters, industrial districts, Prato.
