In 1980 Froebel, Heinrichs and Kreye published the English-language The New International Division of Labour, trying to highlight the consequences of market reorganization after the crisis of the mid 1970s, which was soon to transform into so-called globalization. A third of a century later, the "fantastic adventure" of market integration seems to have been crystallized by the 2007-2008 crisis, opening a further period of great instability. But the geography of wealth production has transformed radically and appears unrecognizable to the early-80s scholar. In a framework of great social, political and cultural change, China, a country at the time defined as an "economic dwarf", is the second largest economy on the planet and has become its "factory". The standardizing concept of "Third World" having vanished, some former colonial economies have undertaken rapid growth processes, while others have ruinously accentuated their underdevelopment. The traditionally advanced regions, then defined as "industrial", have opened out into trajectories defined, vice versa, as "post-industrial", some consolidating their competitive edge and others sparking lengthy declines.

Francesco Dini, associate professor at the University of Florence, teaches geography of development on the Economic Development and International Cooperation degree course, having lectured in political and economic geography at the University of Milan Faculty of Political Science. His current research interests are mainly linked to territorial forms of development and relations between localized processes and trans-scalar stimuli, also observed in the long term. He is director of the Società di Studi Geografici and editor of the journal Rivista Geografica Italiana.

Filippo Randelli is tenured researcher in economic geography at the University of Florence Department of Economics. He was awarded a PhD in economic geography from "La Sapienza" University in Rome in 2002 with a thesis entitled Strumenti della programmazione economico-territoriale e modelli di sviluppo locale (Tools of Economic-Territorial Planning and Local Development Models). In recent years his research has concerned the topic of the transition towards a sustainable development and evolution of clusters. Since 2012 he has taken the English-language Environment and Development course on the masters course in Advanced Development Economics. Since 2010 he has been member of the Board of Directors of the Società di Studi Geografici and head of the University of Florence GIS Laboratory. He has been visiting professor at the University of Utrecht in Holland (2010) and at the University of Cambridge in Great Britain (2011).
