About

The Territorial, Urban, Environmental and Landscape Planning programme at Politecnico di Torino  is focused on two central experiences: urban planning and landscape and territorial planning.

Overview

The activities in the first semester are designed to give students a solid background in areas closely related to the formulation of local planning policies: regulatory issues associated with planning activities, urban and regional geography, sociology of the environment, history of territorial heritage. 

Students must also understand aspects of network and single-point infrastructures concerning energetic, acoustic and environmental issues, and how to integrate these infrastructures into the urban fabric.

In the second semester students will simulate a process for drawing up a plan at the local level, in addition to completing their knowledge in subject areas closely related to the formulation of planning tools, such as transport planning, and gaining a solid understanding of the role of the European Union in urban and territorial policies.
