In the light of the change of conditions that has involved the urban phenomenon and the concept of urbanity itself, the current ‘post-metropolitan’ situation raises some issues regarding the future prospects of the city and the deep meanings of its existence. The inadequacy is highlighted, in particular of the architectural and urban planning project to supply an operative picture of knowledge and experience fit for the new territorial dimension of the city. In envisaging the future of the city, this chapter focuses on the role of the territory, overrun in all its ramifications by the multitude of fragments generated by settlement unfolding. By beginning with the territory indeed, it is possible to provide, through careful, selective representation of its components, the constituent elements for organising original project-based actions able to give back civitas to places that have been fragmented and emptied of sense by the becoming of the city.
