A redevelopment project of public spaces in the consolidated city has to meet two contradictory needs: the first is linked to the dynamics of the social and anthropological change that is conveyed to the evolution of the city; the second gathers the impulses of settling that make the city the place of recognition in which the majority of the urban community is recognised. This work discusses those southern Italian towns that have originated from the unplanned growth of rural villages and have subsequently assumed an urban nature that is more similar to a metropolitan suburb rather than that of a small traditional Italian municipality. A systemic reading of these micro-contexts considers space to be structured in environments and invasions, while also analysing the architectural, environmental, and microclimatic aspects along with the perceptual relationships that arise between the inhabitants and the public space.

Abstract

A redevelopment project of public spaces in the consolidated city has to meet two contradictory needs: the first is linked to the dynamics of the social and anthropological change that is conveyed to the evolution of the city; the second gathers the impulses of settling that make the city the place of recognition in which the majority of the urban community is recognised. This work discusses those southern Italian towns that have originated from the unplanned growth of rural villages and have subsequently assumed an urban nature that is more similar to a metropolitan suburb rather than that of a small traditional Italian municipality. A systemic reading of these micro-contexts considers space to be structured in environments and invasions, while also analysing the architectural, environmental, and microclimatic aspects along with the perceptual relationships that arise between the inhabitants and the public space.
