n the last decade, the decline in industrial settlements has emerged as an increasingly relevant and complex phenomenon, unveiling the limitations of the management models that are traditionally applied to these situations. This crucial problem is here addressed by adopting a conceptual framework, built to exploit a systemic perspective that moves from the recognition of the centrality of the company that used to inhabit the site. Specifically, operational guidelines are proposed and tested through their application to the case of enel’s power plant in Porto Tolle, being part of the Futur-e project. The results show how the conceptual model enables the identification of site-specific guidelines for the End Of Life (eol) strategy definition, and for the generation of opportunities for the entire area. If more traditional approaches were used, these opportunities would have remained undiscovered.
