The paper aims at testing a theoretical framework to study the role of urban governance processes in regulating the development of urban wholesale fresh food markets, considered as key urban infrastructures facing the pressures linked to the logistic revolution of the perishable food supply chain. As other urban infrastructures, they can be considered as the results of political, social and economic forces compromises. A path dependence theoretical approach and a neo-institutional framework are developed to trace the change of infrastructural policies. The preliminary interpretations of the Milanese case are presented.
