We talk to Andrea Boschetti about the urban changes that are taking place in many cities, highlighting the case of Barcelona, which has increased public space in a pioneering way to develop a slow-moving city. We also discuss Milan’s innovative Local Development Plan (LDP) and the topic of urban regeneration as an instrument to transform urban spaces by focusing on the people and their needs.
