Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to submit your works for open access publication in this Special Issue of Urban Science, entitled “Urban landscapes Changes in Mediterranean Regions”. Contextually, this Special Issue will focus on the changes—i.e., social, economic, environmental, political, among many other factors and themes that could be catalysts for changes—occurring in the Mediterranean Territories and consequently be able to reshape and change those regional landscapes.

In the last few decades, these urban landscapes have been subject to many changes due to many local, regional, and global events as well as to social shifts. In fact, these urban landscapes comprise all those events within them. Therefore, the study of urban landscapes allows us to assess the past, understand the present, and envision the future. Thus, this Special Issue will analyze these landscapes from different perspectives, aiming to define regional landscapes dynamics, challenges, and new trends.
