Maria Grazia Buffon

With the drawing up of the Guidelines on regional planning, and the participatory method adopted, Calabria has finally ‘started up’. The institutions have shaken off the torpor with which matters linked with town and country planning were addressed. The widespread degradation of territory and towns is now publicly spoken about, as well as the limits that these conditions place on the development of the region, and the need to change the way of regarding and designing towns and territories. For the first time rehabilitation is identified as the main means of intervention with instruments of planning, programming and design, reorganizing the territory and rebalancing uses and consumption in an ecological manner.
