A strategy for the urban regeneration of the city of Shkodra has been developed for answering to the actual critical issues identified. The proposed approach aims to define effective sustainable strategies for the urban regeneration of the historical town through the development of a set of interventions for the revitalization of the inner-city spaces and the recovery of the obsolescent existing buildings. Starting from the previsions of the General Local Plan, already in force, classes of light actions to respond to the above-mentioned critical issues has been developed in order to intervene on a more detailed scale. The intended strategy seems also suitable for all that contexts with similar problems due to the low impact these kinds of intervention have, able to minimize costs, meet community needs and avoid an excessive consumption of resources.
