The Research hypothesis is that new and original landscape strategies can concretely contribute to environmental and social reactivation of metropolitan settlements, contrasting urban marginality understood both as social marginalization that as a spatial marginality. The research focused on abandoned or underutilized landscapes and structures, far from the center and from circuits of opportunities and cultural exchange. These strategies take the form of two different design devices: first ‘the piers’ intended as green infrastructure or linear landscapes aimed at integrating sustainable mobility, open spaces ,urban agricultural activities; then ‘new social condensers’: public facilities for fragile people to be realized the most deprived urban areas through the recovery of underutilized or abandoned spaces.
