« TOWARDS NAPLES METROPOLITAN CITY »

The notes contained in the volume distributed on social networks from today and then in the press, are an invitation to reflect on the future of "Naples Metropolitan City": on the need to reform its institutional structure and to outline environmental and urban transformation processes that 'help to leave behind positions in the rankings for quality of life. The data collected are certainly not exhaustive: they are the minimums sufficient to highlight glaring anomalies or contradictions that lead us to suggest how to abandon "the era of unjustified ignorance" and how to outline a suitable institutional and urban reorganization. Again in summary form, they document how precisely in Naples - with the Framework Plan of Equipment (1974/75) - a first organic proposal was formulated on an urban scale of what will then happily be theorized in 2003 in "Five Minutes City" giving rise to principles and to techniques, first of all sporadic, which - from 2017 - begin to spread a little everywhere, from Canada to Australia and also in Europe. In the final pages, first notes of these logics in some and very different areas of the territory of “Naples Metropolitan City.
