The loss in the value of outdoor space is clearly seen in the construction of large ‘territorial figures’, defined by residual agricultural areas, but above all in the definition of smaller figures, often belonging to the ‘regulatory landscape’, characteristics of built fragments of the diffuse urban fabric, such as connecting spaces, mobility, parking spaces and the backs of buildings etc. Although these spaces, the direct and indirect product of diffuse urban development, have their own function, they succeed in the composition of neither a porous system, nor a specific urban principle. Often they are not planned, but only regulated by legal conditions, indexes and distances etc. However, in view of their diffuse presence they should be transformed into spatial resources by means of new strategies for composition that involve both urban plans for existing land and for future building developments.
