Aldo Ianniello, Regione Toscana

Soil consumption is a complex, diversified phenomenon that you need to know in order to implement effective contrast actions.

It is not only important to know how much soil is consumed, but also “where” (in urban or rural areas) and for what use (residential, commercial, industrial; for a street, a school, an expansion chest…).

These and other topics will be discussed in depth during the first two sections dedicated to soil consumption:
– “legal” means that laid down in municipal planning instruments;
– actual, or calculated by photointerpretation of the products of remote sensing.

In the third section will be addressed the issue of urban regeneration as an alternative to land consumption: what is the right scale of intervention, if the building, a block, an entire neighborhood; intervening on large areas abandoned, but also as a solution to the problems of urban and social degradation in small municipalities of inland areas.

For these realities, in fact, which represent a substantial part of the Tuscan territory and not only, even the recovery of a building can be a tool to redevelop and enhance the contexts of life. Because land consumption must be combated with constraints and prohibitions, but even more with integrated and targeted policies, aimed at encouraging the reuse, recovery and redevelopment of existing buildings, based on a thorough knowledge of the territory.
