Abstract

The paper addresses the issue of "urban commons" as practices that increase the sense of community of neighborhoods and cities and that steer the project in a framework in which the disciplinary paradigms have deeply changed. Alternative ways of modifying spaces oriented to new lifestyles and use of resources, practices shared use of common areas seem to feed a form of "local resilience" able to resist in a flexible way to the drastic reduction of public welfare in the periphery in which the collective space is offered as possible and innovative tool for regeneration. Starting from the observation of international experiences, as well as "tactical" of local processing implemented in public housing neighborhoods in Palermo, the paper intends to trace project opportunities not forgetting to highlight critical issues and limitations with regard to relations between such practices, planning processes and the interaction between public-private space dichotomy.
