Training objectives:
The course will deal mainly with the redevelopment and sustainable urban regeneration with dell ' " urban method of making. "
educational objective of the course of the implementation procedures of complex programs is the study of different types of complex and urban regeneration programs , their design procedures , approval and implementation on the ground , their implications and complexities quota in technical, administrative and social , highlighting the interrelationships with other sectors of the territorial government and with the elements of innovation useful for the management of urban phenomena and the development strategies .
Upon completion of the course students will be able to read an urban program and to draw up a management plan ( zoning and planivolumetrico ) .

The aim of the course is to carry out, also through a historical reading, a critical analysis of the proceedings in progress and of the effects on case studies, in order to identify possible planning corrections and appropriate corrections to the procedures used so far.
Urban redevelopment in Italy has a long tradition, with experiments that start in the second half of the 1970s and are still continuing. In the course, therefore, the initial motivations of the recovery activities are described, mainly aimed at historical centers. Experiments are illustrated following the law 457/78 on the potential of public residential buildings and on the use of Recovery Plans. The reasons why this experience has not given rise to extensive, effective and replicable practices are illustrated; highlighting the role of the private market.
In the early 1990s, with extensive reflection by the Ministry of Public Works, the methods of public housing and of recovery are changing. The season of urban redevelopment and urban regeneration programs is starting: PRIU, PRU, PRUSST. These tools renew the rules of urban planning, exchange with the private market, and the creation of public works. Twenty years of experience allow us to weigh the results and the recurring implementation problems with confidence.
During the training phase of the Rome 2008 PRG, an attempt is made to correct the defects of the complex program procedures by providing the new and simpler formulas of the Integrated Programs (PRINT) and the urban project procedure, supported by the Preliminary Assessment Study (SAP) . Adequate experience of these programs is available, as well as further corrections to the procedures already adopted by the Municipality.
The aforementioned critical re-reading provides tools and knowledge to experiment, on complex programs that have already been activated for some time and implemented in part, both design changes and implementation procedures, trying to identify the most effective implementation paths.
The Progetto Urbano Ostiense Marconi, born in 1999 and not yet fully and correctly implemented, will be subject to verification and proposed changes.
