A series of cultural events occurring from 2008 until 2010 at the Polytechnic of Milan produced writings and studies, some of which are gathered together here around the concept of ‘urban hybridization’, which relates to the possibility of organising planning and theoretical thinking around the idea of hybrids and hybridisation applied to the discipline of architecture, landscape and regional and urban planning. It is a mass of studies still in progress under various forms which will perhaps lead to the definition of significant conceptualisations. The shortage of funds for academic research has led to the use of all possible channels, of which the main one used is Diap financing for seminars and conventions. The work conducted as part of the research doctorate course has produced good results, but international and internal workshops have also been occasions for the development of ideas and very interesting personalities and intellectual work has also emerged from ‘normal’ teaching activity.

Keywords: Urban hybridization; archetypical figures; urban planning
