Im working on a site that needs to show some of the items in its content in more than one category.
So, item X is shown in category A but I also need that content in category B.
Im thinking about a good way to solve this in order not to be duplicating content. And I would like your comments on previous experiences with this type of problem.
Main issue to solve:
1 The items URL
URLs in the site are www.domain.com/A/X
If I solve the second URL to be www.domain.com/B/X Id be duplicating content, so maybe I can unify URLs and solve it like: www.domain.com/items/X ... But how do I show the category name in the body of that page for that URL? How can I tell if the item is in category A or B?
2 Only some of the items need this double categorization will SEs overlook the duplicate content issue or am I still in trouble?

To complete the scene theres another problem I have to take care of.
The tech department is using this type of tracking in order to measure the effectiveness of the links in the Home page
The content of the home page is allways moving (like a news site)so they use this type of tracking in order to give the homepage administrator info on what content is popular on what section of the HomePage.
