What are the reclaimed spaces of the title? These are fragments of cities that in the last decades of the 20th century lost their former function, or for various reasons ceased to meet the requirements ascribed to this function. They have undergone functional and spatial degradation, becoming painful wounds in the fabric of the city, spaces devoid of life. They therefore require healing and revitalization. This problem primarily affects post-industrial areas, but also post-military and post-oil areas.
