Green and blue infrastructures to naturalize built urban contexts

Rossella Franchino


A problem related to the increasing urbanization of the last century is that of the protection of local environmental conditions and the impact of development and anthropization. In this context, this paper focuses on the contribution of green + blue resources to the environmental re-equilibration of urbanized contexts with the aim of using the principles of nature as a model of sustainable management by stimulating the natural inherent potential in these resources, that remain undeveloped due to considerable anthropization
