Abstract

Starting from the relationship between urban planning and mobility management, TeMA has gradually expanded the view of the covered topics, always remaining in the groove of rigorous scientific in-depth analysis. During the last two years a particular attention has been paid on the Smart Cities theme and on the different meanings that come with it. The last section of the journal is formed by the Review Pages. They have different aims: to inform on the problems, trends and evolutionary processes; to investigate on the paths by highlighting the advanced relationships among apparently distant disciplinary fields; to explore the interaction’s areas, experiences and potential applications; to underline interactions, disciplinary developments but also, if present, defeats and setbacks. Inside the journal the Review Pages have the task of stimulating as much as possible the circulation of ideas and the discovery of new points of view. For this reason the section is founded on a series of basic’s references, required for the identification of new and more advanced interactions. These references are the research, the planning acts, the actions and the applications, analysed and investigated both for their ability to give a systematic response to questions concerning the urban and territorial planning, and for their attention to aspects such as the environmental sustainability and the innovation in the practices. For this purpose the Review Pages are formed by five sections (Web Resources; Books; Laws; Urban Practices; News and Events), each of which examines a specific aspect of the broader information storage of interest for TeMA.

Author Biographies

Gennaro Angiello, Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering - University of Naples Federico II

Engineer, Ph.D. in Civil Systems Engineering at the Federico II University of Naples. His research interests are in the field of accessibility analysis and modelling, land-use and transport interactions and sustainable mobility.

 
Gerardo Carpentieri, Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering - University of Naples Federico II
Engineer, Ph.D.  in Civil Systems Engineering at University of Naples Federico II. He received a master’s degree in Environmental and Land Engineering with a thesis on "The integrated government of land use and mobility for environmental sustainability in the metropolitan areas: evaluation techniques of different scenarios for the city of Rome". In July 2013 he won a scholarship within the PRIN project on the “Impacts of mobility policies on urban transformability, environment and property market”. He is currently involved in the research project "Smart Energy Master" at the Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering – University of Naples Federico II and in the COST Action TU1002 Accessibility Instruments for Planning Practice in Europe.
Laura Russo, Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering - University of Naples Federico II
Engineer, Ph.D. in Civil Systems Engineering at University of Naples Federico II. She received a master’s degree in Architecture and Building Engineering with a thesis on urban expansion and the sprawl phenomena, with particular attention for Campania. Since 2014, she works at the Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering – University of Naples Federico II – within the European project “Smart Energy Master” and her research activity is focused on the complex and multidimensional relationship between the city and energy consumption.
Maria Rosa Tremiterra, Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering - University of Naples Federico II
Engineer, Ph.D. student in Civil Systems Engineering at University of Naples Federico II. She received a master’s degree in Architecture and Building Engineering with a thesis on sustainable mobility in the European cities. In 2014, she won a one-year grant for post-lauream education and research within the Project Smart Energy Master at the Department of Civil Engineering, Building and Environmental Engineering, University of Naples Federico II.
Andrea Tulisi, Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering - University of Naples Federico II
Architect, graduated in Architecture from the University Federico II in Naples in 2006. In January 2014 holds a PhD in Environmental Technology with a research focused on rehabilitation strategies for semi-enclosed spaces in the “Compact City”. He is currently involved in the project Smart Energy Master at the DICEA department of the University of Naples Federico II. His research activity is focused on the link between urban open spaces and energy consumption.
