The city of today requires a continuous and deep renewal in order to guarantee suitable liveability and urban health levels, to drastically reduce polluting emissions, climate-changing emissions and energy consumption, to ensure greater resilience to climate and socio-economic changes.

From a regenerative perspective, the urban contexts affected by the transformation are changed respect to the past, but also the actors involved in the regeneration process and, above all, the ways in which we can and must intervene, which require designers to approach these issues in a radical way, by acquiring new skills and new ways of working aimed to the requalification of the city.
