In Japan a growing number of small and medium size urban centers encounter difficulties in financing the maintenance of existing public services and infrastructures. The official delegation of MLIT is conducting a field research in some Italian cities (Rome, Florence, Bologna, Venice and Ferrara) as well as in other European countries to see how to maximize public benefits for local communities through new temporary uses of public urban space seen as possible additional revenue sources.  The role of the Italian MIBAC is seen as peculiar of our country as temporary use of public urban space in historic Italian cities is subject to authorizations by MIBAC.  The seminar aims to highlight the distinct roles of municipalities and MIBAC provincial offices in general terms and in some case studies in the city of Ferrara.
