Abstract (in English)

The paper aims at finding out inside the regional and urban planning plans elements that could be useful to build up a planning reference model suitable to favour historic-cultural environmental values. Is it possible to find out the spirit of place in the regional and urban plans that bind built territory? Can planning science research the fundamental development conditions of the territories and populations through new territory governance instruments aware of the place’s value? During the current fourth generation planning age, after the coming of environmental plans, can be noticed a rearrangement of the regional planning knowledge framework that privileges the environmental dimension nearby a new code of values, taking into account the characteristics of different territorial contexts. The conclusions are twofold: on the one hand, the need of building a scientific discipline framework to verify the nature of the approach to historic-cultural environmental values; on the other hand, the coding of a model to evaluate ex ante the historic-cultural environmental values that define the immanent sense of place.
