Abstract

The metropolitan cities have changed administrative and legislative borders of territories, transforming or trying to transform them in wider and better connected areas, put- ting together both intangible and tangible, landscape and urban resources. Among the new borders, connections and interrelations, there exist new public spaces, which in different manner act as collectors and facilitators of re- lationships among places, people and memories. For the socialization and integration of people, the public space covers a very important function in the framework of the urban territories and, for this reason, its quality is an im- portant factor in the construction, reconstruction and en- hancement of a sustainable place, where sustainability is meant in its tree-fold meaning, namely social, economic and environmental. In continuity with this approach the idea for a Charter of Public Space and a Global Public Space Toolkit is arisen. Starting from these premises, the article will illustrate the process of construction of both the Charter and the Toolkit, including the Cities of To- morrow report and the New Urban Agenda which repre- sent their main cultural background. In order to assure inclusive public space, the presence of official documents with principles, rules and best practices is necessary.
