Against the background of proposals to demolish and rebuild the Tor Bella Monaca neighbourhood in Rome and others to redevelop it, made in response to the idea of creating a clean slate, this paper highlights a set of energy and environmental strategies and the integration of these with the project proposed by the Milan Polytechnic research group for sustainable architectural and urban regeneration. Interpretation of the environmental features and the diffusion of the consequent actions is resulting in broad ranging methodological considerations applicable to similar cases, which regard the issues of demolition strategies, the enhancement of existing structures and ‘building on the built’. As a consequence tools should be acquired to assess longterm sustainability, in order to go beyond the narrow viewpoint of short-term advantages.
