The Secchi-Viganò Paln for the city of Brescia was adopted in 1998; it was revoked in 2001 with a sentence pronounced by the Administrative Court (Tar) which caused a bit of a sensation among the Italian town planners and it was eventually readopted in 2004. Although the continuity with the original plan was emphatically celebrated, it was as a matter of fact altered in some of its vital elements. The change meant much more than a simple legal arrangement, necessary to readopt the plan. This essay follows the events at the base of the revocation sentence, and it detects the interests and concerns, why the Secchi-Viganò plan was deprived of life and significance. An opportunity for a new consideration about the limits of the plan, the relationship between public and private concerns, and between town planning and architecture.
Keywords: Brescia, urban plan, urban planning-architecture, urban design.
