Slow regeneration is a kind of regeneration which take into account the need of people first and is aimed at changing the places slowly in order to co-create the both new identity of place and its healthy use with and for people according with the times of participation.
On the other hand, nowadays, new tools are used in order to support the knowledge of places. The emergence of internet as a medium of communication has opened up spaces and their users to new meanings and uses, including different approach to citizen participation such as community hubs, network thinking and social networks. The introduction of new technologies has had numerous hits on the deepening of the study of the territory. Indeed, the study on these topics is growing although not still framed in a systematic way in the urban planning and design disciplines. Starting from these premises, the adaptation of an original method of urban analysis and design to an emblematic case study will be illustrated. The case study of slow regeneration concerns the city of Pompeii – South of Italy – in the framework of both Smart@Pompei project and Civitates Pompeii asset with the itinerant event Festival Pompeii. Furthermore, a new index - the HLH Pl@ce index - to specifically measure the impact of event will be proposed.
