The Territorial Governance Plan for Milan raised many criticisms, most of which fearful of turning the city into a ‘concrete jungle’ and of speculation by developers. It also generated enthusiasm in those who believe in a ‘challenge’ for the modernisation of the city. I agree with neither the former, nor the latter. If one examines the ideological roots of the document very carefully, the risks that emerge are far greater: the loss of a sense of identity of the city in the community and the loss of an urban planning tradition of constructing the city, a tradition which goes back to the nineteenth century, from the time of Carlo Cattaneo, and is now firmly established. The idea of the city underlying the Territorial Governance Plan is the opposite of the idea of the city that has always been present in Milanese culture.

Keywords: Urban planning, transport networks, planning permission compensation and fairness
