Too big, fragmented, rundown and inaccessible. These and others are the reasons which the City of Rome used to justify the demolition of Tor Bella Monaca. A few questions should be asked here. Is it possible to turn the problems into potential for regenerating the neighbourhood? Is it possible to use a new description of Tor Bella Monaca to demonstrate that the project proposed by the City administration will not solve the problems identified? Strategic objectives for the regeneration project were formulated on the basis of the problems. These were permeability, connection and relationship. The map of the areas which can be changed is used as the key factor in the process. On the one hand it identifies the areas and spatial categories in which the strategic objectives are concretely addressed and on the other hand - thanks to a process of interpretation and abstraction - it is open to the determination of regenerative strategies.
