A reflection is proposed about designing urban remains: places that have ceased to perform their original function and that now find themselves without citizenship, in a sort of grey area.

Abstract

A reflection is proposed about designing urban remains: places that have ceased to perform their original function and that now find themselves without citizenship, in a sort of grey area. Too little attractive to be taken into account by real estate operators, unlike the big industrial zones. Too recent, and still recognizable, to assume the noble and romantic rank of "ruin". Not so special to deserve restoration and the Superintendence interest. Even not so damaged to be considered waste. However, they can represent a strategic resource for the territory, not just being available to perform new functions, but also holding memories and human stories that would otherwise be lost.
