This chapter compares the development of early urbanization between 800 and 600 BC in three Italian regions. These are the Pontine region in Central Italy, the Salento Isthmus in South Puglia, and the Sibaritide in the northern part of Calabria. The chapter analyses the long-term landscape and settlement dynamics in these regions and suggests that the dimensions of sites and the resulting site hierarchy serve in all cases to reveal processes of proto-urbanization and therefore changes in the complexity of society.

Keywords:   early urbanization, Italian regions, Pontine region, Salento Isthmus, Sibaritide, proto-urbanization
