The National Institute of Urban Planning (INU) has always worked on issues related to environmental, economic and social fragility, making its own the challenges of development, equity, adaptation, innovation and prevention. In addition, the Institute, within the Study Day, the National Urban Planning Review and the Urbanpromo events, organizes every year sections dedicated to these issues to make known the results of the researches and in-depth analyzes elaborated by the members of the INU in collaboration with public research institutions and national and international universities.
During its 90 years of life, the INU has directed its elaboration to find the urban planning tools suitable to solve the emerging problems of the country and has focused, from time to time, on a prevailing theme. In the immediate postwar period, there was a need to rebuild a country and accompany it towards modernity, thinking about economic development and the governance of its induced effects on the territory. Starting from the 1970s, the reformist urban planning that accompanies housing policies and urban planning standards became established. In the second half of the 1980s, awareness of environmental criticalities is becoming more and more widespread and a long process of elaboration is started to make the urban organization move towards sustainability. These prevalences are never absolute and the themes are intertwined and prolonged from one phase to another, so that today they all appear together as the great cultural heritage of the INU available to face the future of the country.
