    <p>Nowadays many seaside towns, economically based on marine tourism, need operations to reinvent and recovery their own image and to define a new strategy of urban development. The presence of the sea is of primary importance and it should be considered not only as an economic resource, but mainly as a strong element of identity that must interact with the urban landscape.<br />The project of Viserba’s waterfront faces these issues and it tries to answer them through a unique urban plan.

    Open space (OS) is a key element in the provision of ecosystem services (ES) in urban environments. Under a land cover-land use perspective, cities are incorporating into the expansion process to different types of surfaces: sealed, paved surfaces and OS. The first corresponds to a land cover change while the second, which includes bare soil, grass, forest or any other type of non-sealed surface, corresponds to a land use change, without physical transformations. As a land use change OS is able to keep fundamental pre-existing ecological properties.

    Una premessa soggiacente alle valutazioni e certificazioni offerte dai principali sistemi di valutazione della performance ambientale degli immobili consiste nel fatto che, ove il mercato disponga di migliori prassi e informazioni, un client group con potere decisionale può e deve garantire la propria leadership ai fini di una responsabilità ambientale, affinché altri seguano il suo esempio per rimanere competitivi.

    In the vast majority of cities all over the world, urban growth takes place in peri-urban spaces.  City models are in deep crisis facing the disappearance of differences between city and countryside. The urban sprawl of settlements in Italy, and also in Europe, is quite different from sprawl phenomenon and suburbs basically referring to American cities. Urban sprawl is characterized by one-family houses, dispersed in the countryside and by large industrial enclaves close to infrastructures networks. Italian situation can be interpreted as a peri-urban model instead of sprawl condition.
