The research focuses on the potential and limits of natural ventilation, analysing with a critical look possible design effects in a specific field of investigation, the historical city. The proposed wind strategy, through the calibration of existing instruments (computational and parametric), the definition of new and specific morphometric factors, the definition of prescriptive and performance indicators, speditive sheets of analysis and planning direction, aims to provide tools more effective and responsive to the peculiarities of the historical fabric, which help designers and administration to integrate the wind factor from the earliest stages of thought out transformation of the consolidated urban space.
