Abstract

The biourbanism was born to promote the exchange of information and to encourage new studies on territory and especially on the development of the environmental and social aspects of the urban systems. The territory and, in particular, the cities, must return to be actual place of relationships between human beings. For this reason, the interdisciplinarity of the analyses (ecology, biology, cognitive sciences, sociology, etc.) is of vital importance. In fact, in order to understand the essence that characterizes the complex interactions of the places and with the purpose to recover the necessary coherence to define suitable actions of design, an integrated analysis of the “existing vital orders” is necessary. It is aimed at the activation of processes able to produce a harmonica efficiency and the improvement of the quality of the life for the inhabitants. Such themes characterize the politics of urban regeneration. They allow reuniting the urbanized areas with the surrounding environment with both environmental and ecological, as well as social and cultural benefits. The general aim, therefore, consists in defining new strategies that suit the specific territorial context and determining a lasting balance between the actual resources and the future demand utilization, connecting the environment with the human comfort by actions that increase and reinforce what really exists and stimulate the vital quality of the places.
