Abstract

To explore all factors of urban change in European cities it is necessary to understand how, politically and physically, is possible to tentatively reach positive scenarios for sustainable urban transformation. An understanding of the built environment and its evolution over time can better allow to respond to what is needed for designing a sustainable environment.
