The article aims to critically explore the mainstreaming of the approach proposed by the Urban community initiative in the regional cohesion policy within the broader urban question in Italy. The attention is primarily focused on the planning cycle 2007-2013, a phase devoted to transfer the best practices taken by the Urban experience but heavily affected by the insurgence of the post-2008 crisis. By proposing a negative judgment on this process, the article provides some arguments, including: the changed political cycle, with the related effects on urban policy; the impact of the crisis on local government; the weak role performed by the regions in the innovation of urban policy.
