This paper analyses the close relationships which connect infrastructures, public space and mobility. It asserts that these three ‘variables’ are closely dependent on each other, by showing how, especially on the scale of what is termed the ‘local network’, infrastructures not only take on the character of a ‘network’, but also that of space so that they end up by coinciding or interfering with most public spaces in the neighbourhoods, and that the current mobility model is making the repercussions which that conflict of use is having on the quality of public space worse. The Tor Bella Monaca case is used to show that it is indispensable today to plan on the one hand by adopting a new mobility model, following European guidelines, and on the other that the identification of space and infrastructures with public space involves a series of strategies designed to adapt them to their new found dual nature.
