Abstract

Urban regeneration and slow travel or tourism are becoming increasingly important in the field of urban planning. The aim of this paper is to study slow travel lines, such as walks  and cycle paths, as possible tools for urban and territorial regeneration. The study proposes a linear regeneration that connects distant territories, rediscovering their hidden relationships as part of a unique storyline. The reasoning is given step by step, with the first three sections focused on the concepts and aspects of regeneration, slow travel and slow lines. In the end, the fourth section analyzes the case study of  Via Francigena and the Apulian Aqueduct cycle path in Italy.  In conclusion, along these two lines, possible design solutions for urban regeneration are experimented.
