The Italian Typo Morphological Planning Technique is an important approach to urban master planning and the conservation and regeneration of historic urban centers in Italy since the 1960's. In 1959, in his book Studi per una operante storia urbana di Venezia, Muratori presented a typological and morphological approach to urban analysis, on the basis of which a mature planning technique was developed. This planning technique is based on the typological theory of the Italian school, which covers the theoretical and practical approaches including Aldo Rossi's architectural typology and Muratori's typomorphology, and was gradually improved after the 1990s with the integration and development of the British and German urban morphology. In the following years, it has been developed and matured and applied in various aspects of urban master planning and historic center planning, conservation and regeneration. This thesis takes the Italian typomorphological planning technique as the research object, analyzes the typomorphology theoretical background of this planning technique, summarizes its urban analysis methods and elements as well as practical operation methods, and summarizes the specific application of this technique and its processes through examples. Finally, with the purpose of exploring the local applicability and practice, the application framework of this technique is constructed, and the historic district of "Zhuangyuanfang" in Guangzhou is selected as an example for planning and urban design practice research. This thesis is divided into 6 chapters. The first chapter is the introduction, which firstly clarifies the background and purpose of the study, and then defines the relevant research concepts and reviews the related research at the theoretical background level, and finally defines the research method and framework. The second chapter is a basic theoretical study, which introduces the theoretical basis of the technique, specifically analyzes the composition of typomorphology and the development of Italian typomorphology, and summarizes the typomorphological analysis methods. The third chapter is devoted to the analysis of the planning technique dominated by Italian typomorphology, focusing on the aspects of the application of the technique and the practical means of operation. The overall process and the applicability of different aspects of the practice are analyzed. The master plan of Rome (2008 edition) is used as an example to further summarize the application of this technique at various levels. Chapter 4 is a study of the applicability of localization, firstly, it analyzes the feasibility of the technique in the Italian context, then summarizes the scope of application of the technique, and finally explains the basis for the selection of the "Zhuangyuanfang" historic district of Guangzhou as a practice. Chapter 5 and 6 are the application parts. Based on the above theory, Chapter 5 analyzes the selected district in a typomorphological way and applies the application framework of this technique to the planning and urban design practice of the district's conservation and regeneration in chapter 6. Finally, the thesis summarizes the research process and conclusions, and presents the research gaps and prospects of the study. This thesis hopes that the research on the application of Italian typomorphological planning technique will complement the domestic research on typomorphology represented by the Italian school and provide some ideas for localized research.
