The social construction of a plan’ is the phrase which underpins all those theories, methodologies and practices which place the active role of the ‘third actor’ at the centre of the planning process. The author discusses the essential arguments for a socially based urban plan, with reference to the theoretical contribution of the ‘territorialist school’ against a background of interactive and communicative international approaches to planning and in dialogue with other lines of Italian research. Examples of the practical experiences of the following issues are described in the final paragraph: the criticism of delegating planning to the technical rationality of the expert; the use of democratic processes and access to citizenship; the importance of the social context; the deconstruction-reconstruction of planning problems in communicative interaction.

Keywords: Participation; territorialist school; urban plan
