In analysing the relationship between architecture and urban planning, this paperstarts from Leonardo Benevolo’s declaration (in 1963) that defines the latter as “apart of politics required to concretize each operational program”. So, while waitingfor the long expected reform, urban planning – once as well as today – needs a complete overhaul to get a better understanding of its role and relationship with politics.The other reference is to one of the founders of this field of research, Patrick Geddes,and his definition of “civic science” (1915). This allows us to stress how modern Geddes’ urban and social planning was. The subject is analysed at its various historicalstages, and the main concept of this paper concerns the link between efficiency andeffectiveness in urban planning and democracy, and participation in political work.
