By failing to incorporate quality and environmental concerns the criteria applied for the territorial and functional development of cities are no longer appropriate. In the on-going search for guidelines and strategic measures, the need for the re-densification and the restoration of a degraded urban fabric has emerged at various levels. If rationally planned, such actions can help reduce the costs inherent in uncontrolled land consumption by favouring a renewed and more effective functional mix. It follows that the recovery and maintenance of the extant heritage and its functional reconversion are part and parcel of the foregoing measures for urban enhancement and requalification. However, in Italy regeneration operations are difficult to implement: they are often promoted but usually fail to materialise. What criteria exist to advance real solutions? To provide incentives for regeneration actions, improve the quality of urban areas and the built environment, and engender a virtuous process in the national economy, new strategies must be defined at the various action levels (planning, design, and building, management). Experts, politicians, administrators and society as a whole must be involved in a much wider process that will lead to regulatory, organizational and associated changes.
