The thematic focus on renewable energies sources (RES) development prevailed on an integrated approach to plan such relevant process in a more integrated and systemic view based on multiple territorial values estimation and the assessment of potential conflicts depending on technological and landscape impacts</p> <p>RES transition implies extensive&nbsp; territorial transformations and, in the case of Italy, the public management spent more effort in targeting RES installation objectives more than proposing a territorial plan of suitable area where such a process might be development preserving local territorial structure and values.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>This paper presents the results of an ex-post analysis carried out to assess the effects of the rapid advent of renewable energy plants in a specific territorial context: Melfi area in Basilicata (Italy). Such a context is characterized by agricultural vocation and high natural values, but also representing the settlement place of the biggest industrial automotive center in the south of Italy.</p> <p>The research approach is based on ecosystem services assessment through selected INVEST tools according with the presence of relevant specific features in the investigation area: carbon stock and storage, crop production, crop pollination and habitat quality.</p> <p>Results allow to quantify an extensive territorial impacts generated by photovoltaics plants and wind-farms compared with production potential. Consequently policy recommendation are proposed in order to improve the governance model for future development of the sustainable energy sector in Basilicata.</p> Angela Pilogallo, Lucia Saganeiti, Francesco Scorza, Beniamino Murgante ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://www.serena.unina.it/index.php/tema/article/view/6117 Sat, 31 Aug 2019 00:00:00 +0000 Implementing the environmental dimension of the EU’s Urban Agenda 2014-2020 http://www.serena.unina.it/index.php/tema/article/view/6136 <p>This work illustrates the planning experience carried out by five municipalities of Western Sicily (Italy) in the the framework of the EU’s urban agenda 2014-2020. The planning process has led to the definition of a Strategy for Sustainable Urban Development (SSUD), whose general objectives are strengthening territorial cohesion and increasing accessibility to local resources. The SSUD action plan, being funded with around 70 millions euro, gives specific importance to sustainable mobility as a mean through which such objectives can be better achieved and reciprocally integrated.</p> <p>After a brief description of the territory targeted by the SSUD (section 1), the paper focuses on the greenway concept within the broader debate on sustainable mobility. In section 3, a series of evidences are provided to identify the demand and potential for the development of sustainable mobility infrastructures in the five cities. In the fourth section, after describing the expceted results of the action plan in the field of sustainable transport, it is argued why in such specific territory a greenway is the best solution to increase accessibility to a broad range of resources and functions (natural sites, landscapes, cultural heritage, urban functions).</p> Ignazio Vinci, Fabio Cutaia ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://www.serena.unina.it/index.php/tema/article/view/6136 Sat, 31 Aug 2019 00:00:00 +0000 Mobility: exploratory analysis for territorial preferences http://www.serena.unina.it/index.php/tema/article/view/6126 <p>Urban mobility is a current challenge on modern life and has its implications not only on time misuse but also on citizens’ health. Spending hours of a day on traffic, people interact with the environment they are susceptible to, which implicates on their manner of seeing, enjoying and living a city. To analyze this impact, an exploratory study was developed on the possibilities of using data composition and spatial analysis tools to select and combine main variables in order to diagnose characteristics of urban landscape on Pampulha Region, in Belo Horizonte (MG), Brazil. Territorial Analysis Units (UTA) were delimited and urban data were studied. First, the main characteristics were represented in categories of variables, and then they were recombined by utilizing Multi-Criteria Methods based on Weighted Sum to present results of suitability for walkability. For each step of spatial analysis, were generated Suitability (Multi-Criteria) and Sensitivity (Uncertainties) Evaluation Maps, proving the similarities of areas considered attractive and vulnerable with the goal to refine the partial results and select the main variables related to walkability. The case study presents the most significant characteristics that might be considered when planning quality of life on urban environments.</p> Alessandra G.T.

Although it has been conceived as a strategic political means throughout history, nowadays sport is considered a positive force in achieving sustainable development. The international documents recognize the contributions it makes to health, education and social inclusion objectives.</p> <p>Anyway, the analysis concerning the relationship between sport and the city should consider both social and physical aspects because people are progressively understanding the city as an ideal palimpsest for sports activities. In this regard, the new phenomenon called "street sport" represents a real challenge for urban governance and planning.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p>The present study focuses on policies and urban design projects adopted by Cagliari City Council to make Cagliari a great Sports City. Cagliari has unique environmental, geographical and climatic features which allow to promote sport activities throughout the year. Moreover, in the recent years the City has realized significant interventions, both on a local and on a regional scale, as the operation - on going - of refurbishment and reconstruction of the new Stadium.</p> <p>Within this favourable condition, the authors examine the community perception on benefits that sport provides for human well-being and for city development through the administration of a specific questionnaire. The outcome of this survey highlights to what extent citizens recognize Cagliari as a Sports City and gives interesting suggestions for the definition of shared policies and actions able to assume sport as a lever of sustainable development in the future.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Mara Ladu, Ginevra Balletto, Giuseppe Borruso ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://www.serena.unina.it/index.php/tema/article/view/6119 Sat, 31 Aug 2019 00:00:00 +0000 Land Suitability Assessment of Green Infrastructure Development http://www.serena.unina.it/index.php/tema/article/view/6118 <p>Urban green space, an integral part of urban ecosystems, provides important environmental and social services that mitigate environmental problems caused by rapid urbanisation and urban sprawl. Urban planning and policy aim at optimising the benefits obtained from urban green spaces. The analytic hierarch process (AHP) is a commonly used technique for suitability assessment of land uses. The traditional AHP method is criticised for its subjectivity and uncertainty. Considering this, Fuzzy-AHP has been introduced as an advanced methodology in dealing with the uncertainty in the decision making process. In this study, we compared the two methods of AHP and fuzzy-AHP integrated with geographic information systems (GIS) for the suitability assessment of Pendik district, Istanbul regarding green space development. First, criteria and sub-criteria were determined and the corresponding weights were assigned based on literature and experts’ knowledge. This is followed by preparation of spatial maps integrated with the corresponding weights and development of final suitability maps in both methods of AHP and fuzzy-AHP. Our results show that high suitability areas are mainly distributed in the southern part of Pendik district around the existing urban green infrastructure. In both maps obtained from AHP and fuzzy-AHP, more than 30 percent of the study area has the potential for green space development.</p> Eda Ustaoglu, Arif Cagdas Aydınoglu ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://www.serena.unina.it/index.php/tema/article/view/6118 Sat, 31 Aug 2019 00:00:00 +0000 The Prominent Values of the Mustapha Pacha Hospital of Algiers at Different Scales http://www.serena.unina.it/index.php/tema/article/view/6127 <p>Mustapha Pacha healthcare facility is one of the most important structure of the sanitary history in Africa. Its stratification goes back to the 19th century. Both of its location in the urban heart of the capital of Algeria and its architectural composition are strategic characteristics of its longevity. But in 2015, some political will pointed out the necessity to demolished the entire hospital. A Utopia due to the complexity of the structure and to economic issues. The study aims to reveal the different heritage scale values of the hospital which characterize it as a preserved and as a functional hospital. Those values are part of the urbanity of the city, its architectural criteria and the medical history. Multi-scalar values are the urban value, the architectural value, the collective value, the scientific value, and the value of belonging. The results aim first to point out the importance of Mustapha Pacha healthcare facility as a building heritage due to its contribution to architectural, human, medical, surgical and technical development.&nbsp; Secondly, it exposes healthcare facilities possibility to be valorized and protected as a built heritage. It also has direct practical implications such as to be an academic base for future researches aiming to understand 20th century healthcare facilities organization and values in general and the Mustapha Pacha hospital as a specific architectural object. The regrouped information is also a deep data collection never done before in order to understand the hospital and can promote heritage’ file submission proposition</p> Nassila Ghida, Kenza Boussora, Carlo Atzeni ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://www.serena.unina.it/index.php/tema/article/view/6127 Sat, 31 Aug 2019 00:00:00 +0000 Walkability and Urban Design in a Post-Earthquake City http://www.serena.unina.it/index.php/tema/article/view/6135 <p>The research described in this article concerns the issue of accessibility with a focus on the walkability in a city that is under reconstruction, such as the city of L'Aquila struck by a destructive earthquake in 2009. The reconstruction is determining a new urban layout in which there is a chaotic overlap of flows of the movements of vehicles and people, quite exceptional with respect to the configuration of an ordinary city. For example, the flows of heavy vehicles and work machines, linked to building reconstruction, and which also generate strong noise pollution and therefore a new soundscape, increase considerably. It is a city in which the return to the residences mixes with large building sites, in which urban transformations are very fast and must be governed through appropriate urban design instruments.</p> <p>The main aim of this research is to define a strategy to realize a method able to calculate at the same time an overlapping indexes in order to classify streets according to how friendly they are for the pedestrian and bike. This theme is approached to a methodological level and is related to the interacting theme of urban design and new centralities. The tool used for this integration is the Strategic Urban Project, which the research experience has found to be more effective and with greater performance than the more traditional Land Use Planning. The design approach and methodology is to integrate urban design techniques with spatial planning techniques, in order to obtain a higher performance of pedestrian networks.</p> Donato Di Ludovico, Paola Rizzi ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://www.serena.unina.it/index.php/tema/article/view/6135 Sat, 31 Aug 2019 00:00:00 +0000 Reviews Pages: The Times They are A-Changin’ 2(2019) http://www.serena.unina.it/index.php/tema/article/view/6224 <p>Starting from the relationship between urban planning and mobility management, TeMA has gradually expanded the view of the covered topics, always remaining in the groove of rigorous scientific in-depth analysis. During the last two years a particular attention has been paid on the Smart Cities theme and on the different meanings that come with it. The last section of the journal is formed by the Review Pages. They have different aims: to inform on the problems, trends and evolutionary processes; to investigate on the paths by highlighting the advanced relationships among apparently distant disciplinary fields; to explore the interaction’s areas, experiences and potential applications; to underline interactions, disciplinary developments but also, if present, defeats and setbacks. Inside the journal the Review Pages have the task of stimulating as much as possible the circulation of ideas and the discovery of new points of view. For this reason the section is founded on a series of basic’s references, required for the identification of new and more advanced interactions. These references are the research, the planning acts, the actions and the applications, analysed and investigated both for their ability to give a systematic response to questions concerning the urban and territorial planning, and for their attention to aspects such as the environmental sustainability and the innovation in the practices. For this purpose the Review Pages are formed by five sections (Web Resources; Books; Laws; Urban Practices; News and Events), each of which examines a specific aspect of the broader information storage of interest for TeMA.</p> Gennaro Angiello, Federica Gaglione, Carmen Guida, Rosa Morosini, Andrea Tulisi ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 http://www.serena.unina.it/index.php/tema/article/view/6224 Sat, 31 Aug 2019 00:00:00 +0000
