With the ongoing climate urgency, it’s necessary to transform society towards a more sustainable way of living, drastically lowering GHG emissions (climate mitigation). At the same time, in light of the growing number of extreme climate-related events, there is a need to adjust the urban environments for the risks that come ahead, defined as the process of adaptation. Urban resilience is a term that unites both mitigation and adaptation, which has lately been used more often to describe the ability of a city to withstand the stress and shocks of different natures. The thesis is based on the research of different fields that together unite in the Masterplan of a disused area of Pavia, named Confluence, representing the final stretch of Naviglio Pavese before running into the Ticino. The different perspectives on Infrastructure run central to the thesis: Slow Tourism Infrastructure, the system of Navigli, adaptive reuse of disused infrastructures, and the concept of Landscape Infrastructure. As the final result, the Masterplan aims at regenerating the area by transforming it into the Urban Resilience Infrastructure with a strong dedication to leisure.
