The issues of sustainable development and urban regeneration are addressed with an overall strategy that intends to systematize a multiplicity of integrated actions. The concept of eco-neighborhood, which is proposed as a model both for the planning of new settlements and for the transformation of consolidated cities, was born as a response to the environmental, social and economic problems that characterize them and which are constantly changing. Even in Italy, real estate assets should be considered a resource as they have the great potential to be transformed into a sustainable environment through careful urban planning. The goal is to give quality conditions to the transformation of neuralgic areas in the territory through scenarios and intervention actions that move from Smart City/Smart Land paradigm: for a sustainable urban project. Keeping firmly the principle of integration and processuality, the proposed strategies are incremental in nature, the feasibility of the project being conditioned by the possibility of resorting to appropriate systems of environmental compensation and mitigation and equalization of property values, through transparent negotiation practices with properties.
