Learning outcomes of the course unit

The course of Urban Sustainable Planning aims to provide students with advanced knowledges in the analysis and evaluation of urban
and land settlements, to make them able to address the reading, interpretation and proposal of the instruments of urban sustainable planning.
With this aim, the course offers students an overview about the historical evolution of the city, its morphological factors, the system of centralities, the
planning instruments of national and regional issues, the problems and the critical factors that affect the decisions in urban planning.
The course will address these issues in lectures, seminaries and group work, through which students can gain an understanding of issues related to knowledge, planning and design of urban sustainable settlement.
