Cities are slowly transforming, contracting or expanding as citizens move from one place to another through spontaneous journeys and places lived or paths thought by designers and created and managed by local administrations. Citizens’ health and cities’ organization identify each other in a two-way relationship as the urban settlement marks the inhabitants’ lifestyle whom, with their functions of work and daily leisure and their ways of living those places dictate the rhythms of the city. Urban health policies pursued by the plans can therefore be understood as more general urban quality policies since they concern the improvement of life’s conditions through a better functional organization of the urban organism to favor the accessibility to the public heritage of goods and services and also encourage new social life practices.

Abstract

Cities are slowly transforming, contracting or expanding as citizens move from one place to another through spontaneous journeys and places lived or paths thought by designers and created and managed by local administrations. Citizens’ health and cities’ organization identify each other in a two-way relationship as the urban settlement marks the inhabitants’ lifestyle whom, with their functions of work and daily leisure and their ways of living those places dictate the rhythms of the city. Urban health policies pursued by the plans can therefore be understood as more general urban quality policies since they concern the improvement of life’s conditions through a better functional organization of the urban organism to favor the accessibility to the public heritage of goods and services and also encourage new social life practices.
