The deep-rooted transformations that have taken place in the contemporary territory make it useful, sometimes indispensible, to build scenarios. The Bologna municipal structural plan has been developed with this awareness and, in relation to some of its characteristics, acquires a strategic aspect. It is therefore a fundamental interpretative framework for a composite series of urban planning works and actions, the feasibility of many of which is proven and accepted. It seeks to consolidate the medium-long term vision through a wide-ranging process of consultation with institutional, economic and political figures and through promoting understanding of the territory through the discussion of clearly identified choices. It emphasises the importance of building up a shared image of the territorial area, which is clearly anchored to the spaces to be redeveloped.
