Abstract

The reurbanisation trends emerging in a number of developed and "post- industrial" cities are possibly related (also) to the key role played by transportation system in determining urban size and its shape, as well as urban location patterns. Because of the dynamic interaction between urban transport and land use, of relevant scale- and time-indivisibilities, and of long-lasting effects of urban infrastructure network, accuracy in demand forecasts is more and more crucial for planning transport infrastructure networks in this phase of urban life-cycle. The paper includes results of a case study concerning the city of Genoa, where re-urbanisation is apparently emerging in recent years, with relevant consequences on transport demand and infrastructural system. The case study includes the analysis
