It is now a widespread opinion, mainly in administrative field, that the occasion given by great events would foster the competitive impulse of a city. On the contrary, many people affirm that the organization of great events would divert the attention and often hinder durable processes of re-qualification. This paper suggests a reading of the experiences related to the organization of great events in the cities all over the world, in order to define how and, eventually, how much the transformations of the city and, particularly, of the mobility system accomplished to support those events would have contribute, on the one hand, to increase the corporate fixed capital of each urban community and, on the other hand, to raise the competitiveness of the city to the international level. In the first part, the paper aims at identifying the role that the literature of the sector gives to the great events either in local ambit, in contributing to improve urban quality, or in global one, in helping increase the level of competitiveness. In the second part, the paper, by describing the real experiences carried out during the organization of great events in Italy and abroad, points out the urban transformations and those of the mobility system that have really contributed to the city re-qualification and to the increment of competitiveness.In the third part, the paper defines the role played by great events in the Strategic Plans of the big western cities and describes the perspectives of virtuous development related to Naples linked to the organization of the Forum of Cultures 2013, defined as banner project of the Strategic Plan. L’articolo ha l’obiettivo di individuare il ruolo che i grandi eventi, occasione di significative trasformazioni della città e del sistema della mobilità, giocano nel miglioramento della qualità urbana in ambito locale e nell’innalzamento del livello di competitività in ambito globale. Inoltre, l’articolo si propone di tracciare in breve le prospettive di sviluppo di Napoli connesse all’evento Forum delle Culture del 2013.
