Although the development of the initiative is still at initial stages, a number of preliminary insights appear relevant when it comes to how ‘infrastructuring’ integrated strategies for the circular economy at the city level. First, the City has been successful in promoting a renewed urban identity and boosting a narrative that, while acknowledging its industrial past, attempt to project the latter into the future through new meanings and understanding. The emergence of dedicated co-working spaces, shared making facilities, new projects and a vibrant community of young makers and entrepreneurs over the past few years can be seen as a result of the efforts made by the Municipality to create an enabling and supportive environment in this thematic domain. Furthermore, the approach to the circular economy as a horizontal topic of the City’s urban agenda has been key to pooling resources and favour integration and shared intents across city departments; the recent UIA Urban Jungle project, the participation to the Urban Agenda Partnership on the Circular Economy or the collaboration with Prof. Mancuso and architect Stefano Boeri in the context of the City’s urban forest programme, are all pieces of a broader ‘puzzle’ that the City is developing towards sustainable and innovative urban environments, leveraging capacities and strengths that are diffused in the territory. In this context, it is also worth mentioning the specific effort led by the Municipality for creating sound, multi-dimensional impact frameworks for measuring and assessing the multiple benefits stemming from circular and greening initiatives, in order to foster evidence-based understanding and open rooms for new investments and co-management regimes of urban assets. Lastly, in terms of governance, the adoption of multi-thematic working groups can be mentioned as a good practice to involve a variety of actors in the construction of partnerships and shared interventions, which shall also boost capacity-building and territorial coordination in the face of the next EU programming period.
