The concept of Urban Services, like the product between supply and demand in a city, dominates, although in an indirect way, urban planning. Nowadays we need to organize planning processes based on a study of actual needs, from which come down services to promote in urban center. It’s like a “matriosca” scheme: the first part, the bigger, is the city, and then we have a lot of subsystems connected together, who are Government, citizens, needs and services. This process comes down from the city’s change, that before the Modern Era was just a geographical place, where the walls were the limits. Today the city is the union between the geographical place and citizens, where social and urban polices are the basis for the economic, social and environmental growth. In the case study, concerning an urban regeneration plan in the city of Bari in Southern Italy, these aspects have been analyzed and practiced. It shows the integration between public participation and use of ICT, for its promotion.
