Abstract

The theme of urban colour planning and design is characterized by a plurality and multidisciplinarity of approaches, values and meanings, whose implications and correlations are still little explored. In Europe since the seventies, the colour plans dealt for the first time the subject of urban colour in a unified and systematic way, thus allowing the development of real urban planning instruments to coordinate, control or regulate the colours of the city, or a significant part of it. In spite of the different approaches and methods that distinguished especially the first phase of experimentation and discussion, colour plans are characterized by the same desire to respond to the problems of urban quality and identity through the enhancement of the chromatic image. The paper traces the first experimentations of urban colour planning, bringing out the cultural and methodological conditions and foundations within which the colour plans are formed and structured, as well as the topicality of the questions raised in the light of the recent and widespread urban revitalization operations through colour.
