Abstract

The global crisis that in recent years has been investing our planet at different levels - social, economic, political, cultural, environmental - has determined a constant change in the quality of life in the cities. Cities, unfortunately, increasingly vulnerable characterized by insecurity, uncertainty, unpredictability due to mistakes made in the past. This is why, today, urban planning is called to satisfy the new needs of the community through a planning that must be adapted to change. In this scenario, urban centers - in order to ensure high levels of quality of life and responsible management of territorial resources - they must re-examine their governance, their strategies for expansion and transformation. It is necessary that they use new approaches capable of declining some innovative concepts such as participation, transparency, creativity and resilience. In this work, particular attention is paid to sustainable mobility, the main critical element for achieving the balance between the needs of individuals and common well-being, and the restoring of old railway tracks. We will take care of some Sicilian cities that are investing heavily in this sector, aware that the innovations of the mobility and transport system are essential for developing tourism and guaranteeing better livability in the cities of the future.
