This is the reconstruction of an important planning experience by the ‘Astengo Commission’ for the revision of the 1959 regulatory plan for Genoa. The work lasted two years and gave rise to a twenty year long planning process which came to an end in 1980 with the introduction of a new General Regulatory Plan. It is also the results of thinking that arose from the rediscovery of important documents on the work of that commission. The documents describe and interpret the importance of the work by recognising its substantial nature and their value is enhanced by documents signed by Giovanni Astengo and study materials attributable to him. These documents need to be conserved and catalogued because of their relevance to research on Astengo himself and for the clarification they provide on these events in Genoa.
