Those bodies responsible for urban and regional planning at national level are still today attached to traditional forms of "insulated" protection, painstakingly oriented towards "network" policies, while in regional governments almost all land use and urban and regional development laws enacted after 2002 contain references to ecological networks or systems of environmental continuity even if the concepts are often inapplicable in reality. A ‘zoning approach’ and an ‘urban policy approach’ attribute a relational ecological meaning and therefore an ‘ecosystemic’ role which is not necessarily secondary to geographical areas such as uncultivated areas, abandoned cultivated areas, burned areas, unmaintained woodland and other areas which traditional urban planning has always relegated to an inevitable status of pre-urbanisation. A profound revision of planning paradigms is required to upset the established certainties existing in current equilibriums.
Keywords: Ecosystem; ecological corridors; areas of ecological re-equilibrium
