Abstract

The article presents a study for a “creativity incubator” in the Torrette district, Ancona, Italy, next to the Regional Hospital Centre. The urban-territorial project involves the creation of multifunctional public spaces to increase the spaces and operational relations between the social-healthcare structures and the public space of the district. The primary element of innovation introduced by the project is an integrated vision between different disciplinary fields, in order to define an original urban planning approach to the theme of active-creative ageing. Is it feasible to reduce the impact of the public spending in the development proc- ess by increasing the quality of life? The resilient city, which adapts to change (of citizens), ensures better conditions of psycho-physical wellbeing (and thus for the health of individuals) and may help the autonomy of the elderly population, propelling the induced processes of active age- ing even through the careful planning of public urban spaces.
