Abstract

The Metropolitan City of Reggio Calabria has a complex territorial system with different f ields and context from the morphological and settling point of view to economic development. Inside o f the city we find the Aspromonte National Park, almost like a ‘metropolitan garden’, a mountainous park of more than 65,00 hectares, which is an almost unique example on European level. The Park is in fact one of the five homogeneous territorial areas as identified by the latest Statute of the metropolitan city. The territory of the A spromonte National Park is a sort of show, full of history and culture which arouses sense of belongin g in the established communities, also for the significant relationships between man and nature which could become a source of interest to the potential opportunities of project. The proposed paper put in evidence the fact that in order to develop a different growth/improvement plan, it is necessary to have a complex and coordinated projectual strategy in the PNA settlement system, aimed at combining economy and enhancement of cultural and landscapes’ resources with environmental protection. We want to propose of the possible design sce narios regarding the link between a proper growth of the territory (which has to be congruent with history, heritage and re sources of the landscapes) and the necessity to be actively involved in the development of a wide r territorial system, the one of the Metropolitan city which it is part of.
