Land take is in the centre of a lively cultural and political debate, thanks to a widespread awareness on the strategic role of natural and semi-natural soils in producing ecosystem services with an high added value. In Italy, since post-World War II, soil consumption has increased with a speed of 8 m2/sec. The soil and its conservative management, stand out as the topic on which to build a new Social Development Model. This model should pay attention to the urban environment issues and, at the same time, it should create added value and wealth through the development of production activities and new markets that do not reduce the production capacity of ecosystem services, thanks to urban policies aimed to shorten energetic and food supply chains, according to European strategies on Energy and Common Agricultural Policy.
