Abstract

The paper deals with the critical issues concerning the public spaces and linear settlements located in the Alpine valley floors. The development of modern urbanisation caused spatial and relational impacts increasing the demand for the right to the city and nature expressed by the inhabitants of the Alpine suburbs. Therefore, the paper identifies possible project areas for establishing a new system of public and collective spaces, as already tested through the mentioned case studies concerning the different contexts. These selected spaces are widespread in heterogeneous mountain landscapes and constitute design opportunities at different elevations to restore territorial quality and identity and reconnect the interrupted or incomplete relationships. They could compose a new public, collective, and open spaces system to be developed as a real landscape regeneration project made of places, relationships, and identities.
