One of the most discussed topics of recent times is certainly Urban Regeneration, today an integral part of national and European policies. Disused buildings, underused areas, entire degraded districts, environmental problems: it is necessary to reinvent cities, transform them with eco-sustainable systemic interventions aimed at improving urban and socio-economic conditions, through the re-qualification and reorganization of spaces, the infrastructure of the territory, the inclusion of functions that respond to the needs expressed by the market.
To this end, it seems necessary, first of all, an integrated planning approach that combines aspects linked to the building and the environment with more general objectives linked to the social dimension, putting different kinds of interests and opportunities into the system. Moreover, it has now been demonstrated that urban regeneration interventions constitute an economic engine capable of generating significant impacts and repercussions on the socio-economic fabric of cities and in this sense they are explored by the public administration as much as by private entities.
