Abstract

In general, safeguarding and improving the development of a city is the primary objectives pursued by the administrators of a city, considering in parallel the development of the context governed by economic, social, cultural and tourism. It is now commonly accepted that, for the pursuit of such objectives, either it is necessary to impose rules and limitations, at least partial, for access and stop in urban areas: both to cars used individually by people for their own transfers, as regards the means used to transport the goods. It is clear that the increasing development of motorization must be regulated through measures taken in the urban context in order to reduce the critical issues connected to it. Congestion and pollution would make it paradoxically more unreachable and inhospitable as much as they are all desired and desired for the performance of their life activities, of work, study, leisure and more. In accordance with the excellent results achieved by the “pedestrianization” of the streets of Maqueda “of Palermo city centre (area between the Quattro Canti and the Cathedral), which has led to a huge increase in tourist flows and the increase in commercial activities and the historical experience of the markets those who have experienced an economic crisis, we consider vital for the valorization and economic recovery of a heritage of the whole city. The increase of the limited traffic areas defines a reduction in vehicular traffic that aims to reduce the presence of cars for the benefit of livability, commercial and artisanal re-launching, tourist use. The pedestrian areas analyzed will be decided after a comparison between central and decentralized institutions, with the direct involvement of inhabitants, traders and committees operating in these areas . therefore the SWOT type analysis is fundamental for preliminary knowledge of the benefits and critical aspects of an urban intervention and also laying the foundations for more in-depth assessments both from an economic and transport standpoint through the simulation of the transport system analyzed in different scales.
