The indigenous persistence, texture, articulation, shape and functionality of the urban definition of the municipia in central Apulia demonstrate the nature of the complex history and settlement of this area in the long period between the age of Romanization and the third century AD. The comprehensive collection and examination of the material evidence make it possible to reconstruct - for the first time, in an organic manner and in a global framework - the profile of the urban space of `Poediculorum oppida'. This has been carried out according to a dynamic perspective that reveals signs of restructuring and approval, of novelty and vibrancy, of strength and interaction, to make possible the reconsideration of that stubborn idea, prevalent until recently, of an ineluctable `crisis', and to draw a picture of urban geography calibrated according to an intense and morphogenetic tension in terms of the assimilation of Roman culture and adaptation to local conditions. Italian description: Persistenza indigena, consistenza, articolazione, forma e funzionalita urbanistiche dei municipia della Puglia centrale consentono di leggere la complessa vicenda storica e insediativa di questo comparto nel lungo periodo esteso fra l'eta della romanizzazione e il III sec. d.C. La raccolta e disamina complessive del patrimonio documentario permettono cosi di ricostruire - per la prima volta, in maniera organica e in un disegno globale - il profilo dello spazio urbano dei `Poediculorum oppida' secondo una prospettiva dinamica che lascia cogliere segni di ristrutturazione e di omologazione, di novita e di vivacita, di rottura e di interazione, per provare a riconsiderare quell'idea pervicace di ineluttabile `crisi' tradita fino a tempi recenti e a tracciare un quadro poleografico calibrato su una intensa e morfogenetica tensione fra metabolismo e simbiosi.
