Public Open Spaces and Cultural Heritage: an integrated approach to the urban regeneration

Caterina Frettoloso


This paper investigates the functional, spatial and cultural relationships that exist between urban open spaces and cultural heritage. It will be primarily aimed at studying the role that the construction of an urban network, made up of the open spaces system and the diffused cultural heritage, can take as part of regeneration strategies of Mediterranean cities in which problems related both to the ecological-environmental as well as technological-design issues intertwine.
