Making Cities Smarter is the challenge of the new millennium, even in a context of profound structural crisis like the present one. In fact, there is an urgent need to rethink the models of socio-economic development to make them more consistent with the new social needs, in particular related to the territorial liveability and social inclusion. In...

The issue of sustainability is crucial today. Resolving environmental problems also requires radical choices and actions for cities, which need more green areas capable of providing a variety of ecosystem services. But the scarcity of monetary resources does not allow all the projects proposed to be implemented. This raises the question: how can we...

The making of land values is conditioned not only by the specific soil production capacities, but also by socio-demographic and economic parameters of the territory. The research aims to highlight the logical-dimensional relationships existing between the land values of a cultivated quality widely spread over a large area and the variables populati...
Article
Full-text available
After a long phase of suburbanization promoting economic decentralization and uneven expansion of urban rings, re-urbanization has been observed in an increasing number of European cities. However, a comprehensive analysis of demographic dynamics underlying spatial patterns—and factors—of re-urbanization is still lacking for the European continent....

The temporal evolution of land values is conditioned by the reference macroeconomic framework and, more strictly, by the socio-demographic and productivity characteristics of the territorial study area. If these dependencies are widely recognized in the literature, on the other hand, the correlation levels between the variables at stake, especially...

Cohesion policy, focused on the relevance of the place-based approaches, suggests defining territorialised interventions, that is to say calibrated on the actual needs of geographical contexts as well as on specificities and local resources. The result is a rediscovered centrality of the concept of territorial capital which is deepened in this cont...

The issue of land take is characterized by analytical complexity and legislative effectiveness. So, in dealing with this question, several aspects have to be evaluated. This project aims at a quantitative assessment of the municipal urban planning in terms of land take, in the context of the Campania region. To make this, the Master Plans of many m...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The analysis of the processes of urban growth and sprawl should be conducted taking into account the temporal evolution of a plurality of parameters: economic, demographic and socio-cultural. These factors are so related that the complex territorial system sometimes seems indecipherable. Thus, as the quantitative modeling suggests, the real phenome...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Urban growth processes are notoriously complex, depending on vastly different demographic, socio-cultural and economic factors. The analysis is even more complex in the metropolitan areas, since they are the result of ancient agglomeration processes in a phase of intensive development of settlement and, more recently, of the formation of urban poly...

In this paper «land take» and its drivers within the urbanization process is studied with a focus on recent developments in Italy. Our analysis follows the so called “territorialist” approach, as defined by Magnaghi (2000, 2005) and by Dematteis and his school (Dematteis, 1994, 2001; Governa and Salone, 2004). Several sources of information, recent...
