The paper presents an evaluation of the protocol for requests for building permits carried out by the City of Milan, through various committees, in the period 1945-1947. This was the initial phase of the reconstruction of a city heavily affected by second world war bombings, a city with no plan, after the suspension of the 1934 Albertini plan decreed by Cln (Comitato di liberazione nazionale/National liberation commitee) in 1945, (but with many building contract stipulated with private investors still in force, especially in the central areas), while every construction activity was interdicted. Analysis of the data obtained from the documents is accompanied by an evaluation of attempts of committees to face the conservation problems raised by reconstruction activity. In the same period. the City of Milan was working out a new tow plan, the implementation of which, however, was hindered by a long approval process. At the same time, we see the start of the release of a large number of "in precario" (temporary) building permits, a custom which was to continue and expand.
