Abstract

Cities have to be more inclusive and put citizens at the base of development projects, interpret their needs by relating their civic sense and their perception of urban quality and train and educate to safety with precise information actions but above all with the design of quality public spaces. The recent planning experiences of some European cities show us that it is possible to introduce quality in the connective space thanks to a different cultural approach and under the pressure of innovative territorial tools, attentive to the quality of urban facilities in the constant search for urban safety and security. The spaces designed for mobility are the main component of the public space, where transport and pedestrians perform their functions of walking and socializing. They are urban places with multiple uses that have to favor social relationship contributing to create a sense of safety and inclusion within the urban context. Moving, walking, socializing are activities that must be carried out serenely and in conditions of comfort because these are above all the indicators of the civilization of a society that make one perceive the feeling of self confidence
