topic

A growing number of cities aim to become iconic scenarios in global economy. 

One of the main goals of the urban regeneration policies has been the raise of interest for the development of public space creation and renovation. As a result, the former spaces are transformed by the new venues-places. The traditional open space expands into new ways of public spaces internalization.

Due to the massive movement of tourists, the concept of both public and private space has been changed.

Nowadays the design projects for the regeneration or the improvement of the quality of public spaces within the city, intended as new leisure spaces, can be a driving force for local development. In this process tourism acts a main role, being a source of urban transformation. Re-designed public spaces are often transformed in new iconic places, attracting both local visitors and visitors from abroad, so becoming – not always without conflicts – the main places of meeting between tourists and inhabitants.   

Currently, the citizens often put into question the validity of collective and social spaces, because of the progressive replacement of its socio-cultural function by an economic, touristic or private one. According this some questions have arisen: which urban and architectural strategies are capable of materializing public spaces?  Which cultural values, collective memory or social functions, are transmitted to the urban space? Which links do these spaces establish with the rest of the urban fabric and the city life? How the both commodification and the new commodization change the urban space?
