  • Adriana Scarlet Sferra 'Sapienza' University of Roma
Keywords: territory, historic villages, sustainability

Abstract

Continuity, in the sense of an ‘uninterrupted extension in time and space’, does not tolerate acceleration (urbanization) nor contingencies(migrants); or problemsthat can even be partially solved by acting on the suburban territory, precisely to ensure a necessary continuity with historical city planning . A summary of the results emerging from research analyses aimed atregenerating the territory along with the historic villagesrooted within it, and which identify a specific territory in cultural and socio-economic terms. The benefits expected are social (strengthening the population/territory ratio and providing migrant reception); economic (growth of productive activities); urban/environmental(protection ofthe natural environment and landscape, approval of the smart land plan), in conclusion, maintaining continuity when planning the historical city.
