Urban planning in Lombardy, put to the test by small municipalities. Two "virtuous municipalities" - The complex regulations for general plans which the Lombard Regional Law No. 12/2005 defines, seem suited above all to large urban and metropolitan realities. Planning in Lombardy therefore puts small municipalities, who often find difficulty in applying that law, to the test. Two cases of small municipalities illustrate the use they have made of Regional Law n. 12, the difficulties they encountered and the results achieved: Cassinetta di Lugagnano in the Province of Milan along the Naviglio Grande canal, with a town centre of great historical architectural value and Vaiano Cremasco in the Province of Cremona, where the consolidated agricultural land use and an attractive landscape sit alongside an active and heavily industrialised district. In both cases the general plan places the accent on respect for the environment, on safeguarding unbuilt land and on the need for urban planning to take back its role in directing and co-ordinating the environment. The main fundamental principle is that of the least consumption of land possible which is taken to the utmost in the case of Cassinetta di Lugagnano, where a principle of ‘zero growth’ has been adopted for the municipality’s urban planning policies.
