FACELIFT FOR A NEW PORT AREA IMAGE: THE CASE OF PALERMO

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The renewal of the urban look (Urban Facelift), starting from the harbor zones, could play a crucial role for the development of the whole city. This study will analyze the case of Palermo port area, considered as the “face” of the city. Sicily is indeed an island, therefore, because of its natural and infrastructural features, the sea is still the privileged connection with the world. For this reason, the urban renovation in the city of Palermo has begun just with its coast area. The tested methodology will combine the Urban Faces with the present state evaluation criteria by involving different stakeholders. After that, the Urban Faces will be associated with possible and suitable future scenarios. In these way, an Urban Facelift strategy will be set.
