The article presents a brief psychosocial analysis on the city, specifying the characteristics of the current urban setting. An analysis both of the Italian housing situation, with specific reference to the last decades, and of urban regeneration that have been made will follow. The recent urban interventions are of particular interest because they aimed (and aim) to improve the quality of life in residential contexts favoring the social mix and the development of social networks through direct forms of participation. These issues are here briefly presented in reference to the critical elements that must be considered, and possibly prevent, in the interventions design.
