Urban Blight and Redevelopment: An Urban Participation Path

Risultato della ricerca: Chapter

Abstract

This paper pays particular attention to one of the many participatorymodels present in the landscape of urban and territorial planning. Specifically,the ACTION PLANNING model was chosen; a model used in Anglo-Saxoncountries to identify the problems and needs of the inhabitants of a giventerritory, through the involvement of interested parties or stakeholders. Themodel is applied in Sicily, to Villaseta, a small rural settlement, located southwestof the city of Agrigento, which consists primarily of affordable and socialhousing. It is a suburb without identity, left to itself, where – despite thevaluable cultural, historic, scenic, and most importantly human resources – onenotes the presence of degradation, hardship, and social exclusion. The quality oflife is poor, the housing requires serious restoration work, and a large numberof public spaces are unused due to decades of failure in the managementpolicies of the local government.
