In the past century the spatial organization of modern societies has been dominated by the effects of an idea of efficiency based on specialization and economy of scale. In the name of efficiency and hygiene, some areas have specialized: those where to work, those where have fun, those where study, those where go back to sleep.We can refer to all of this as the scenario of livable distance.

Over time, however, it clearly emerged that the application of this scenario was leading to very serious environmental and social problems. Therefore, since long time some cases appeared in which this model began to clash with other ideas and practices, driven by the need to bring together what had been separated and to reconnect what had been disconnected. That is, tobring services, workplaces and people's homes closer together.These new ideas and practices, i.e. thesesocial innovations, con be seen as the beginning of a new, emerging scenario:the scenario of livable proximity.

Although the problems of the society of distance were evident since long time, until 2019, the ideas and practices that had led to the definition of the scenario of proximity have slowly advanced. Then the pandemic arrived and, paradoxically, the same sanitary distancing it required has shown everyone how important physical proximity is: the social role of neighborhood services; the advantage of working close to where you live; the importance of having good relationships with the tenants next-door. In short, the value of the scenario pf proximity has been recognized by a growing number of people and institutions

The lecture discusses this scenario of proximity, showing how it has emerged from thegrassroots social innovationsof the past 20 years, and how, in some cities, it has become a reference for action, sometimes using the expression "15-minute city, with the creation of newproximity systemscapable of responding to many, if not all, the daily needs of citizens.
