The new Strategic Plan continues the transformation for competitiveness towards Turin as a new metropolitan area.
Over the last twenty years, Turin has undergone a structural transformation: from a single-industry “factory town” to a new city identity based on knowledge applied to a broad spectrum of activities, from manufacturing to research, training, arts and culture, urban renewal and welfare.
This process of change—which sees in the future creation of the metropolitan city a further opportunity—was guided by detailed strategic planning of the entire area launched in 2000 with the first Strategic Plan and which continues today in the Third Plan. Thanks to the results it has attained and the process itself which actively involved all area stakeholders, Turin is a point of reference for urban renewal and relaunching of its economic-productive system.
