After analyzing the nature, and the past and present impact of globalization, the article focuses on local territories. These are viewed as social spaces that constitute realms or scenarios especially appropriate to examine the implementation of the global, or glocalization. From the evolutionary paths of these territories, from localism to growing glocalization, the author sets out to explain their social dynamics. These are conceived as deterritorialization and reterritorialization, processes which are closely linked to changes in expectations and in positions of power and/or influence of the respective social groups or classes configuring and/or configured by local territories, and which at the same time entail a restructuring of socio-economic functions of the territories and their symbolic and cultural resignifications.
