With the approval of the law for urban regeneration, there is a turning point in both approach and method. Redevelopment of existing urban tissues, collaboration between public and private, energy efficiency and seismic and hydrogeological adaptation. These are the cornerstones on which the law is based, to reinvigorate the sector's economy, but with a change of approach focused on environmental respect, resource utilization and security.
Among the envisaged measures is the increase in volumes or surfaces (up to 40%), but also delocalization and changeover of use. Municipalities are entrusted with a central role in the choice and evaluation of interventions. You also have rules for the functional reorganization of bathing establishments, both seas and lakes, in respect of landscape and environmental disciplines.
There are also direct interventions: renovations or demolitions and reconstructions will be allowed, with an increase of up to 20% of the existing gross surface area (with the exception of productive buildings: up to 10% of the covered area). The standard is extended to agricultural areas and, under certain conditions, to outdoor facilities. Direct interventions will not be permitted in historic urban settlements.
A separate article covers energy efficiency and seismic improvements. Cinemas of the regional territories will benefit from the new law on regeneration: they will be able to host other activities such as bars, restaurants, shops and other services to expand cultural offerings. It is the first application of the Franceschini Law on the audiovisual sector by an Italian Region.
