In the era of velocity, communications and sustainable development, the systems of mobility assume an increasing role as the backbone to the harmonic and democratic growth of territories. Strategies of urban planning and rehabilitation aimed at regenerating vast areas of Italy may draw signiﬁcant advantages from the interconnection and modernisation of road and rail networks.
The infrastructures of the third millennium, in addition to ensuring the increasingly more ﬂuid and safe exchange of passengers and goods, thanks to the sensitivity of designers and the use of new materials and technologies, can become “green & smart”, that is, intelligent, ecological and productive; true networks for the widespread generation of renewable energy (solar, wind, water, etc.), capable of offering occasions for economic development and employment in vast territories and local communities.
