The environmental and social costs of the extensive and intensive development of new areas not yet built are increasingly relevant . For this reason land use decisions are increasingly oriented to consider the development of the city from its existing perimeter , giving up models that generate urban sprawl.

It is also being used increasingly in urban redevelopment - but it requires substantial financial resources that in times of economic hardship are difficult to find by the individual municipal administrations .

Therefore, the public-private partnership becomes an important way forward, not for ideological choice, by certain administrations and researchers, to achieve program objectives and design of all involved subjects.

With new knowledge provided by Geo-analysis, more than 37% of Italian housing property was carried out between 1946 and 1971 and that about all of this amount is currently in poor or very poor condition . And ’ possible to speak of " the city to be scrapped ".

The papers show a geo-statistic analysis aiming at finding best for urban renewal by the plus-value recapture of property, deriving from a plan for urban densification
