In the recent years, urbanization has cleared vast agricultural areas, particularly in peri-urban zone. In a recent law proposal the Italian Government proposes the valorization of agricultural areas through the control of buildable agricultural land, according to Regions and Municipalities. Assuming that some factors of pressure in peri-urban area would make the farms more disposed to convert their land from an agricultural use to an urban one, it is proposed an innovative methodology for territorial governance. In the case study analyzed the variables depending on the proximity to the city are crucial in the process of land conversion.
