  • Sonia Paone Assistant Professor in Urban and Environmental Sociology Department of Political Science, University of Pisa, Italy


The impoverishment and vulnerability that characterize the European urban periphery in the transition from the Fordist production to the flexible accumulation regimes has started a new season of programs of urban renewal trough intervention related to the revitalization of specific part of the city.

This article considers specifically the case of Italy, retracing the steps of planning changes that led to the creation of these new tools, and highlighting some limitations of this type of intervention.
