The article explores the opportunity to apply Alberto Magnaghi’s urban bioregion model to the case of Turin. Much weakened, both in vision andin political leadership, after the 2008 and CoViD-19 crises, Turin can use the urban bioregion paradigm to reorganize its urban and regional planning and pursue new ambitions of sustainable development. Moreover, in the area of “Corona verde” project (for the development of Turin’s periurban green infrastructure) the city already has the ideal context to experiment the integrated territorial vision proposed by Magnaghi. In Corona verde natural, ecosystem and landscape resources, as well as in its production and governance traditions, there are the conditions to overcome the traditional Turin-centric closure and to promote new governance models based on the development of circular supply chains, of the place values and of the local communities leading role.
