Towards the plan
This publication was written in November 1998 as part of the preparation of the Strategic Plan. It is an in depth analysis of the city from which emerges some of the initial objectives for the Plan itself and some general strategic points to build on in the future.

Together with another important document, 'Fundamental Data', which contains all the data collected from previous research, 'Towards the Plan' focuses on the results of this initial phase of the work which was carried out by the International Scientific Committee. The results form a base for constructing the principal hypothesis for the Plan.

Towards the Plan was prepared thanks to the contribution of some of the researchers at the heart of the study of Turin. It contains, concisely, all the essential information on the economy and society of the city at present, the forecast for the medium term if there are not more corrective initiatives. The document concentrates on the threats the city faces, the resources available and the measures needed to correct the present situation.
