This paper aims to critically review the emergence and evolution of design methodologies aimed at improving security and quality of life in cities. It analyses important experiences internationally, particularly in America where they first experimented with an environmental approach to urban security, and in more evolved European contexts. It then looks at Italy following the recent Legislative Decree of 2017 and successive additions and the UNI Regulation of 2010 which sets out a clearly structured design approach which has not, however, been implemented.
