Probolinggo is a city that continues to grow since the pre-colonial era, then into the Dutch colonial era and became an important port city, and finally after independence of Indonesia, its influence has subsided somewhat, but it is still one of the port cities in the northern coast of East Java. There is a typical historical process from the fortress city, then it becomes a trading city that distributes commodities from Java to the outside world and vice versa. In this city there is alun-alun as a public space/open space of the city since the colonial period with a strong axis (axis) between the city to the port, which was then added to the train station with a large warehouse (called the fort). The research method used in this study is a qualitative research method, by looking at the development of the city and Probolinggo community participation in the process of change that occurs from time to time, the influence of power from a centralized to a more diffuse (diaspora) and deteritorialization/ reteritorialization concept. In practice, this study combines direct observation and document investigation. This deteritorialization and reteritorialization process in Alun-alun Probolinggo has shown how this city has developed from a Dutch colonial city into a dynamic postcolonial city, and can answer the spatial challenges of the present and the future. This square is able to combine syncretically between tradition and progress, between Probolinggo's local identity and global characteristics.
