The construction of urban qualities. The case study of the centrality of Torre Spaccata in Rome

Eliana Cangelli, Maurizio Sibilla


The evolution of the settlement arrangements in Rome is determined, in large part, by the implementation of the 18 centralities under the New Town Planning, which will be a testing ground for experimenting with new living profiles. Using a case study of Torre Spaccata, the authors demonstrate the contribution of the environmental project to the construction of an urban development model that is attentive to the energy and environmental characteristics of the settlement arrangements. The experiment is set up as verification of the methodological approach of the environmental project, serving as a transfer of the disciplinary knowledge body in a implemental process which sets out research lines to deepen professional knowledge and planning.
