Abstract

The search for an "Italian" model of a social city began in the eighteenth century with the foundation of the Bourbon colony of San Leucio and re-emerges widely with the Italian company towns, after the industrial revolution between the nineteenth and twentieth century (Leuman, Valdagno, Torviscosa , etc). Reconsidering the experiences of Italian working cities in the complex game of passages between real cities and ideal cities, allows to elaborate new reflections that take into account, after centuries, the performance and quality of settlement models to investigate and prefigure new contemporary interventions to be implemented also in other urban cultures.
