Università degli Studi di UdineThe University of Udine is deeply involved on territorial issues. Since its founding, by people’s will, after the 1976 earthquake, the University of Udine is contributing to the cultural, social and economic development of Friuli, a small but strategic region located on the eastern edge of Italy between the Alps and the North Adriatic Sea. This region is a meeting point of three major cultural and linguistic areas: the Latin, the German and the Slavic. In particular, the Department of Civil Engineering and Architecture (DICA) works together with communities, institutions, businesses, and citizens to address, through an integrated approach, the strategic interests of Friuli as well as the issues of local territories in relation with the impacts of the globalisation processes.

In this perspective, the challenges posed by the Poly5 project are particularly stimulating our Department on the theme of the integration between infrastructure systems and local and regional territories, particularly when these territories are characterised by a mountainous geography and by a polycentric socio-economic structure. Furthermore, this project favours some new decisional approaches and methodologies in order to promote cooperation between local territories and communities and to analyse the transformations deriving from major infrastructure systems.
