Part of the Urban and Landscape Perspectives book series (URBANLAND, volume 10)


Great spatial development has always taken place “through urban projects” with only moderate coordination by planning tools or regional or sectoral policies. Relative autonomy is an intrinsic feature of this kind of “area-based project”. It cannot be annulled by the cogency of norms or by the need for consensus. It can only be managed by the political system which has to find a synthesis between the different interests involved, avoiding, if possible, a too sharp and unexpected discontinuity between regulations, political programmes and their implementation (Portas, 1998; Palermo, 1998, 2009).
