In contemporary cities, abandoned and disused spaces increase, finding new life in the ac-tions from the bottom. This paper focuses on the informal reuse of urban voids as a tool for social and urban development, therefore encouraging a reflection on the role of the spontane-ous action of citizens in the formal logic of the city. In response to contemporary socio-spatial fragmentation, informal urban reuse practices can activate semantic re-composition and re-territorialization interventions. They are connected to urban regeneration processes and under-line the idea of a collective project for the city. This article investigates the informal reuse case of Porto Fluviale in Rome.
