The article focuses on different uses of the concept of social mix and on emerging criticalities of its use as a planning principle by discussing the results of empirical research on recent housing projects in Milan, Italy. Although the concept of social mix is generally represented as a tool to improve the living conditions of disadvantaged social groups, the praise for social mix in new housing projects may also be driven by the will of targeting the needs of specific medium–low income groups considered functional to urban growth, and by the increase of real estate values that it may provide. In urban contexts affected by a severe shortage of rental housing, social mix strategies may foster the exclusion of lowest-income groups from access to social housing and favour their segregation. Especially with reference to southern European cities, social mix risks becoming a catchword with paradoxical effects in local policy agendas and the topic of mixed communities becoming employed as a socio-political lever for developer-led, profit-making developments.

The report presents the outcomes of a research commissioned by the Plan Urbanisme Construction Architecture within the research program ""Mixité fonctionelle versus zoning : de noveaux enjeux?". The Multidisciplinary Research group was coordinated by Massimo Bricocoli and Paola Savoldi and involved 3 research units investigating in 3 different European cities: Milano (Massimo Bricocoli, Paola Savoldi, Francesco Curci at Politecnico di Milano), Copenhagen (Jens Kvorning, Katrine Østergaard Bang, Bruno Tournay at Center for Urbanism, Royal Danish Academy for the Fine Arts), Hamburg (Ingrid Breckner, Nima Dafateri-Moghaddam at HafenCity University). The redevelopment of inner city urban areas has been a main concern for European cities dealing with post-industrial restructuring in the last decades. Large areas have been released from a manufacturing vocation and have been transformed through large-scale development projects. It is worth investigating how spatial and social organization processes are developing in these new urban areas which tend to display a significant role in supporting the attractiveness of cities and in hosting a consistent number of new economic activities as well as in housing those inhabitants who “return to the city” in a phase of re-urbanisation. In this respect, driving research questions have been: under which conditions, and with which expectations, do people decide to settle in the central city? What sort of city-space has been produced? How and why are uses influencing urban qualities? Which are the elements that allow and support a mix of functions and social groups in the face of prevalent tendencies towards separation and segregation? Along these questions, we have been analysing (through direct observation, intensive field work and interviewing, policy analysis and a photo reportage) three redevelopment projects which are emblematically documenting the transformation of productive areas into multifunctional urban areas with a residential core function: Bicocca/Milan, Islands Brygge/Copenhagen, HafenCity/Hamburg.

Significant ageing processes are ffecting many regions across Europe and are changing the social and spatial profile of cities. In Trieste, Italy, a joint initiative by the Public Health Agency and the Social Housing Agency has developed a program targeting conditions that allow people to age at home. The outcomes of the program stress the need to redesign and to reorganize the living environment as a way to oppose to the institutionalization of older people in specialised nursing homes. Based on intensive field work, this article presents and discusses the original and innovative inputs that the case study is offering to the Italian and European debate. [less ▲]

This article deals with the development of local welfare in Italy and is grounded on a research project focusing on activation as a main feature of change in Italian social policies. Along with decentralization processes, many Italian regions have been acting as policy laboratories, developing and testing very different approaches according to their political attitude. On the one hand this results in a fragmented policy landscape which is difficult to recompose, and, moreover, in growing inequalities in the Italian welfare system. On the other hand, it opens opportunities for experimentation on institutional and organizational structures on a regional scale, creating a variety of practices for research and policy analysis. In the article we first describe the main trends in national social policies, with a specific focus on the dynamics of change referring to activation. We will then focus on a pilot programme which is aiming at the promotion and implementation of innovative practices in health and social care services in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, a region in which there is a significant orientation towards enhancing social citizenship and enforcing the central position of the public actor. We investigate how the dynamics of territorialization and personalization, implied by the programme, trigger specific logics and practices of activation. Finally, referring to this case study, we propose an analytical overview of some relevant issues in the development of ‘local active welfare’ in Italy. [less ▲]
