New Strategies for Local Identity: Towards the Oreto River Park in Palermo. With regards to the Oreto river park in Palermo, the Council of Palermo, the near Council of Altofonte and the Council of Monreale activated in 2004 a project for environmental regeneration. This project is focused on a Life Environment program named “Sun & Wind”. In this context, a research group of the University of Palermo, in collaboration with the three city councils, studied ecological, natural and cultural resources in order to improve the quality of life of inhabitants and tourists. According to the strategical planning framework, the masterplan of Palermo is integrated with the ones of Altofonte and Monreale. The common mission of the research group is the realization of the Oreto urban natural park by using an interpretation plan which gives voice to the territory. The output of the research was a map of local identity which: a) defines the general framework of the rules of protection of the Oreto environment; b) points out the strengths and the weaknesses which have to be included in the project.
