In the recent years, thanks to the United Nations and the European Commission, cities are again in the public agenda. In Italy, we are experimenting a revival of interest for urban policies, according to approaches that are partially convincing. Community hubs can contribute to a national urban agenda. The article provides arguments in favour of this thesis and distils some policy recommendations, as follows: community hubs address a fruitful perspective to deal with the reuse of abandoned or underused public assets. The social manager of community hubs are urban innovators, that represent key actors for the new urban agenda. The initiatives for the creation of community hubs are levers for the regeneration of suburbs.
Keywords: Community hubs; urban agenda; urban regeneration
