The topic of this paper highlights the relevance of interior design for urban regeneration. The aim of the paper is to outline the role of (urban) interior design as the initiator, with its own specific know-how and tools, from which to promote processes of re-signification of public and collective spaces. It is argued that interior design activity conceived in this way enables citizens, and more generally users of those places, to activate ‘processes of use’ which are more coherent with the logic and needs of contemporary urban culture. The research is grounded in selected definitions in order to build a precise conceptual framework in which to move. This in turn has produced a series of visions and a set of operational tools able to facilitate both the intervention of the designer as conductor/mediator of the process and the community of users involved as future users of that place or environmental system.
