In January 2018, Carlo participated in one of the roundtables leading to the new Urban Planning Document (PGT) for the city of Milan. The PGT is the municipal documents which sets the rules for the urban development of the city.

The workshop part of the process called “Ideas for a changing city”, was focused on urban regeneration and public space. Different tables composed of various stakeholders had to select priority objectives, map them and identify instruments to tackle them.

A clear focus was given to the resilience of the city, both to natural and human-made hazards.

Interestingly, more flexible instruments have been envisaged by participants, who acknowledged the fact that a metropolitan vision is needed in order to tackle emerging issues at a larger scale.
