The urban transformation of the Novello project area in Cesena is implementing a process of renewal through procedures envisaged under the vast family of the complex programs that began in Italy in 1990. The General Regulatory Plan (PRG), approved in Cesena in 2005, is leading to the completion of the strategy of reuse of the abandoned industrial area around the station, which began with the PRG of 1985. This included the renewal of the former Arrigoni and sugar factory industrial areas. The goal is to create new urban centers able both to balance in formal and functional terms the empty spaces recovered from these areas, and avoid greenfield use. The following articles will illustrate, through the words of those involved with different roles in the program, the process which is accompanying the phases of the Novello project, with its balanced mix of procedures and project ideas, as well as interventions aimed at integrating and connecting zones, stakeholders and financial resources.
