Economic crises force everyone to change perspective, thinking of progress in a different way and making more informed use of resources and technology. Even the world of architecture is forced to review the attitude towards urban issues of housing dispersion. The city seems then to regenerate itself, growing in on itself, favoring operations of densification and thinning, of transformation of existing artifacts, of reuse and conversion of infrastructures: urban strategies for a (almost) zero land consumption.
