Abstract

This work proposes a reflection on one of the emerging themes of spatial planning: the redevelopment of waterfronts, outlining, in its approach, the need for extreme sensibility to the impacts of climate change. The analysis introduces a temporal reconstruction of the practices and principles that have oriented the city and its relationship with water, as well as the management in government activities of the territory, related with this relationship. Starting from the case study represented by the waterfront of Naples, the work aims to define an exportable and replicable approach. The final goal is to implement a requalification able to re-updating the relationship between waterfront and territory and, at the same time, to consider the issue of climate change in relation to the impacts produced in these areas. This new approach can generate redevelopment and become an opportunity to regain a lost relationship between urban fabric and sea. Furthermore it’s an opportunity for an overall economic and managerial reorganization of the urban- metropolitan areas. The work, aware of the complexity of the theme, present the case of Naples as emblematic of the contemporary challenge for innovative planning based on an integrated and climate proof approach, able to combine synergistically the reality of the city, the coast and the sea in a framework of territorial sustainability and climate resilience.
