Abstract

The urban regeneration of suburbs - places of inequality, even before geographical and social suburbs - must go hand in hand with the identification, description and measurement of these inequalities, and in particular those that concern the supply and access to urban commons - schools, parks, public libraries, health facilities, childcare facilities, public spaces and services - intended, as well as essential elements of welfare, as places and structures linked to the exercise of fundamental citizenship rights (Rodotà 2015). A good urban regeneration process arises first of all through shared investigation paths, in terms of data, descriptions, graphic representations. Secondly, it can and must be addressed to the care and enhancement of urban common goods - schools, public spaces, parks and green areas, libraries and other places of culture and social relations - promoting their full access and maximum use, in particular for those aimed and addressed to children and adolescents, with direct, simple, effective, and shared actions. Urban regeneration, understood as a set of actions of different nature and sector of intervention, well calibrated to each other, capable of revitalizing in a general sense territories marked by inequalities, so that it assumes real effectiveness, contributing to the effective reduction of these inequalities, it must put together innovative practices of administrative gover- nance, and active citizenship, within new logics of horizontal subsidiarity, moreover increasingly favored, today, in Italy, by recent legislative and administrative innovations. These practices must open up more space for direct, in-formed participation of the inhabitants and grassroots associations, for shared care and active custody of these goods. The contribution tries to develop these hypotheses starting from the experiences carried out by the author around the urban realities of the southern ‘periphery’ of Pescara.
