In a fragmented and conflicting urban scenario it is crucial to plan for regeneration keeping design hallmark firmly in place by avoiding references to past models that consists of exclusively normative processes, lowered from above or facilitating substitutes or even subordinated to the composition of political agendas.

Regeneration is the tool for operating in the contemporary city, which no longer expands but transforms itself within its established limits.
Form, characteristics, and social and economic structure of places are the sphere of experimentation for regeneration models driven by different drivers. Among them, culture, especially in our country, is the most powerful and comprehensive element to trigger the processes of development and change.
