The processes of rapid and uneven urbanisation found in the diffusely inhabited areas of the Upper Po Plain have left a dense deposit of residual outdoor spaces, which if reinterpreted appropriately could become a resource to restore balance to the urban ecosystem. The paper discusses strategies for the reorganisation of urban metabolism by means of forms of integrated urban forestation (Fui). The description of a scenario and of some prototype models of integrated urban forestation highlights not only the production capacities but also the numerous environmental services which forestation can offer in a diffuse urban area.
Keywords: Reuse of underused spaces; integrated urban forestation; urban metabolism
