The importance of Urban Planning’s role to safeguard green areas and to build up green chains has gradually increased. The latter played not only an ecological function into the city’s environment requalification, but it becomes also an occasion to find social space. The present research thesis has investigated the concept of the green chain, the declination and implementation modes that this topic had in the local planning instrument and, specifically, in which way the urban planning is working defining and managing the reticular continuity. Proceeding from the terminology analysis of network and system concepts, the research intended to identify and to characterize the current use of these terms into the planning legislation, both into national and regional levels and, moreover, to study the implementation that the network concept get into the planning instrument. Two European situations were explored, Italian and Spanish: a comparative and descriptive methodology was used to analyze the different interpretations and use of the green chainsterms into the national and local scale (Ferrara and Santiago de Compostela towns). The different use of urban planning terms in the theoretical and practical evolution of green chain concept was described from model to paradigm and still to process. The investigation aimed to understanding the different paths on which the planning practices are moving to create and manage network systems of green and urban spaces.
