The metropolitan area of Turin was one corner of the “industrial triangle” of Northern Italy in the past Century. The post-industrial transition implies an explicit strategy of environmental and landscape requalification. The green and blue infrastructure of Turin is the result of 25 years of plans and projects, a clear landscape vision, and a collaborative multilevel governance system. The lecture illustrated planning mechanisms and outcomes at the local and the regional scale, and recent challenges in the management of such a supra-local system.
