Rigenerazione urbana e produzione di qualità paesaggistica: connessioni possibili fra strategie e strumenti
Urban regeneration and landscape policies have usually been developed on a parallel path. The change of paradigm marked by the ELC in the conception of landscape, that now includes ordinary and degraded landscapes as central to human well-being, implies that the strategies of urban regeneration and those of improving landscape quality can be complementary. Starting with some remarks on the ambiguities of the concept of urban regeneration and the threats it poses to landscape quality, the article focuses on the opportunities offered by landscape planning for inclusive and self-sustainable urban regeneration. The paper refers to practices experienced in the Puglia region to point out the role played by the policy instruments to this end.
