Particulary it is underlined the social dimension of the urban gardens, which foster the relationship of the community with the urban context. In a time of crises and loss of resources, the urban gardens represent also a strategy for urban regeneration with a buttom-up approach, which seeks, at the same time, to meet the social demand of "landscape" by recovering public spaces with social purpose and with an aesthetic improvement of the common good. The analyzed case studies - the Orti urban project of Italia Nostra, which is based on a funding request for a European LIFE project; And the project for the upgrading of the Fontivegge area in Perugia, which is part of the funding plan for suburbs of metropolitan cities- both provides for specific strategies in terms of promoting biodiversity and urban regeneration.
