EUREKA (European Urban REgenerators Knowledge Alliance) is an Erasmus+ project which aims to train new professional figures (urban regenerators) for the urban regeneration of the future, based on investment in knowledge and culture with a strong social impact. Led by the Iuav University of Venice, it involves in partnership 4 European universities and 11 actors from 9 different countries, including LAMA.

LAMA is in charge of the on-going monitoring of results and impact assessment (at micro, meso and macro levels) of the project in its entirety.

With a budget of 8.5 M€, co-funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme, T-Factor involves 25 partners from 11 European countries plus two from China and the USA. Focusing on the time between the approval of an urban regeneration masterplan and the completion of the construction site, T-Factor demonstrates how temporary uses of space can be extraordinary opportunities for cultural, social and economic activation, making regeneration more effective, resilient and sustainable.

LAMA, in collaboration with I-Propeller/KPMG, is in charge of the impact evaluation of the project, taking care of both the measurement of the outcomes at local level in the 6 pilot cities, and the evaluation of the effectiveness and impact of T-Factor’s “city mentoring” model, in terms of the strengthening of the pilots and local alliances activated. Lastly, LAMA assesses the transnational impact of the project, in terms of knowledge and exchange networks generated around sustainable regeneration issues.

LAMA carried out the context analysis for the urban regeneration intervention conducted by Kervis SGR in the Bicocca district of Milan.

The study was conducted through desk research and included socio-economic analysis, identification of key stakeholders and analysis of the local real estate market (prices, benchmarks and trends) in order to identify the key elements of the intervention’s best spatial positioning, as well as potential ESG practices to be activated before, during and after real estate development. The study represented the preliminary action aimed at better qualifying the positioning of the intervention concept.

+ CASCINE is a collective contribution of civic imagination on the Parco delle Cascine in Florence, created to promote its identity as a cultural institution and common good.

It was a path of research, stakeholder engagement and communication, promoted by Manifattura Tabacchi and LAMA, with the aim of bringing to the city’s attention the theme of governance, protection, enhancement and liveability of Florence’s largest green lung. Starting from a desk research on the key features of the Park’s history and heritage, LAMA carried out in-depth interviews with experts, economic operators of the Park, cultural institutions and public administration referents, which produced a document of collective imagination, an augmented map of the Park and a call for projects destined to create a public digital archive of the numerous studies and projects on the Park from various disciplinary points of view.

LAMA was commissioned by the social enterprise “Con i Bambini” to carry out a Meta-analysis of Education Programs to fight learning poverty in Italy (2016-2018).

The subject of the investigation is the approximately EUR 214 million of funding realised through three national calls for tenders, of which LAMA analysed the Theory of Change and mapped the projects funded (analysing the relevant partnerships, objectives and innovative practices implemented).

LAMA also carried out a participatory evaluation of the project results, through questionnaires to the project leaders, partner schools and internal evaluators. The final outcome of the Meta-analysis is the production of a set of policy recommendations addressed to policy-makers and stakeholders of child education poverty in Italy, who were also involved in the process through interviews and dedicated workshops.

The Florence Osservatorio dei Mestieri d’Arte (OMA), together with the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Firenze, commissioned LAMA to carry out a feasibility study to check the condition of the artistic craftsmanship enterprises in the Florentine area, useful for the definition of a model to support the (re)establishment of these enterprises in the Historic Centre of Florence, with the dual objective of supporting the sector and providing an opportunity to relaunch the city.

The study was carried out through the analysis of regulations and context data concerning the Florentine artistic handcraft sector, a questionnaire to the companies of the OMA network, interviews to local stakeholders, a desk research of European best practices on resettlement projects. Possible scenarios were then drawn up, with relative risks and opportunities, for models to support artistic craftwork, favouring its settlement in the historic centre.

Firenze dall’Alto is a three-year strategic project financed by the City of Florence’s Estate Fiorentina, conceived by LAMA and realised in collaboration with the Coop. Archeologia and the association La Scena Muta. The Festival, held in the summer evenings at sunset, intends to promote cultural enjoyment from unseen and normally inaccessible places in the city: roofs and terraces, public or private, from which to assume a different and elevated point of view. The innovative character of the project consists in exploiting the full transformative potential of places to increase the scope of artistic performances and the spectator’s experience, inviting them to a wider enjoyment and reflection on the urban environment that surrounds them, enriched also by the stratigraphic reading of the city.

Many Possible Cities is the Festival on urban regeneration born from the collaboration between Manifattura Tabacchi and LAMA that aims to create a temporal and physical space for multidisciplinary confrontation on urban regeneration. Based on the contamination between short and long networks, the festival focuses on the studies, experiences, opportunities and contradictions that characterise urban development, with a multi-voice and multi-point of view discussion, for an audience of public administrators, professionals, academics, third sector, practitioners and citizens.

“BORGO PROSSIMA | Partecipa al Piano” is the participation path of the Municipality of Borgo San Lorenzo to involve the citizenship in the writing of the new Municipal Operational Plan (POC). The entire path was articulated in various sharing actions, internal and external to the Administration, and in listening and comparison activities, digital and in presence, representing an opportunity to redefine the territory and its vocations. An extensive online survey was also carried out through a CAWI modality, with the objective of identifying new needs, collecting proposals and thus realigning the priorities of the public administration with those of the community, for effective participatory urban planning.

The entire process was designed and managed by LAMA, in the aspects of research, method, facilitation and engagement and communication strategy.

Within the framework of the National Strategy for Inland Areas (SNAI), LAMA supports ANCI Toscana, entrusted by the Region of Tuscany, in the process of accompanying the 3 newly recognised inland areas of Tuscany, for the drafting of the Preliminary Territorial Strategies for the seven-year period 2021-2027. The process includes actions of consultation and structured listening to stakeholders, with a participatory and inclusive approach, capable of acknowledging the needs of communities and the economic and social fabric, facilitating collaboration between the various administrations involved and triggering shared innovation dynamics, in order to build solid and generative strategies.

For the Municipalities of Londa and San Godenzo, LAMA carried out a period of coaching and technical assistance for the definition of territorial development strategies. The two municipalities – gateways to the Park of the Casentinesi Forests and part of the National Strategy for Inner Areas (SNAI) – share many of the typical characteristics of marginal Apennine territories, including the lack of services, depopulation and an ageing population.

LAMA supported the administrations of the two municipalities in a study and analysis of territorial levers for economic and social development, in order to guide their participation in calls for tenders and investment opportunities from the Next Generation EU Programme.

As part of the assignment, LAMA was in charge of drafting the project proposal for the public notice ‘Projects for the cultural and social regeneration of small historical villages PNRR M1C3 – Investment 2.1 – Village attractiveness – Line B’, which was one of the 207 selected out of more than 1,800 proposals received by the MiC at national level.

Firenze Prossima is a large-scale citizen survey that was based on the dissemination of online questionnaires and the use of digital engagement tools to collect responses and proposals from citizens on various issues that concern them.

How have people’s habits changed as a result of the pandemic? What factors contribute to improving the quality of life in the districts and neighbourhoods? What are citizens’ priorities for making Florence greener and more sustainable?

The survey, supported by a communication and data visualisation campaign, ran for a month through five online questionnaires (one for each district), and collected a total of 7485 valid response. Four reports were produced on the changes in Florence, the strategic themes, the focus on young people, women and city users, and districts. The reports can be downloaded here:

Labirinto is a social cooperative that has been running personal services in the territory of the province of Pesaro and Urbino and neighboring provinces since 1979. For the entire social cooperation sector, the impact of covid has accelerated the need to adjust internal organization and development strategies in order to improve effectiveness, efficiency, performance, and more generally the very sense of the role that the private social sector, especially cooperatives, plays in the resilience of welfare and social protection systems. Labirinto has therefore commissioned LAMA to support the cooperative’s management in a consultancy process aimed at addressing both aspects of internal organization and elements of development strategy.

In 2018, LAMA wanted to ground its experience on implemented urban regeneration interventions (Impact HUB and Manifattura Tabacchi Florence), with the writing of a white paper entitled “Designing Multistakeholder Urban Regeneration”. A contribution of knowledge and case histories that aims to be a useful tool for Public Administrations, Professionals, Operators and Real Estate Development Funds to initiate processes and policies of urban regeneration that see the co-presence of elements essential to the success and sustainability of these interventions: the involvement of communities, the quality of real estate supply, the mobilization of public-private finance, and the protection of the collective interest for the development of polycentric and biodiverse cities. The White Paper is the result of a research and engagement process that involved interviews, meetings, and desk research activities, combining a reading of current trends and policies with a collective and choral vision that feeds on the views and expertise of all stakeholders.

Business and social economy are often treated as independent sectors. Most often, however, they are united by an interest in social impact, which leads to forms of collaboration that have significant potential for innovation and community benefit.

Together with the lead partner Technopolis, and five other international research centres, LAMA contributed to a European study commissioned by EASME (EU Commission) as a follow-up to the Social Business Initiative, a European initiative to support social enterprise.

The study assessed existing collaborations between businesses and the third sector, through questionnaires, interviews and the realisation of case studies in different sectors and subject areas. LAMA was also responsible for the development of an evaluation model for profit/non-profit collaborations, co-created with experts, companies and stakeholders from the sector.
