Abstract

The study evaluates the management of urban centres where the consolidated city tends to be a synthesis of the evolution of all the confirmative events which, together, show strengths and weaknesses of the actions carried out on the territory. The research assessed a shared and scientifically oriented management of the urban areas of Ortygia and Floridia, respectively the urban centre and a town on the outskirts of Syracuse. A synergy between Research Centres and Public Administrations was previously established so to direct the investigative approach towards the urban planning programmes according to a sustainable development. The research used new technologies based on interactive IT systems as a crucial factor of knowledge targeted on further graded explorations and analyses through an active relational connection with the available objectives and resources. The purpose was to detect and protect valuable fragments and typological features of the old urban fabric through the implementation of an informative and morphometric database of the architectural elements of the town. The expected goal is to steer the management and the future transformations of the urban planning towards interventions directed to the protection and enhancement of fragments of “minor” architecture.
