Authors discuss the concept of "place" according to different perspectives and focalize on how a company can utilize place as a resource to reinforce its positioning strategy. A case analysis involving Italian industrial districts is discussed and place-as-a-resource is introduced in a more extensive interpretative framework on industrial networks.
