up acceptance of innovative solutions. Beginning awareness of appropriate technologies with associated attempts at implementing innovative design solutions. Fusion of technologies and legislative actions for wetland protection, groundwater recharge, and public recreation. Acknowledgment of the importance of cumulative effects. Future. Search for means to take new technologies and redesign them to deal with ecological issues. An approach for assessing performance that is more like medicine in terms of requirements for quantifiable data, threshold criteria, and checks of implemented solutions. Further education of the comprehensive role water plays in the functional infrastructure of cities. More knowledge needed about the hydrologic importance of groundwater recharge in a watershed context. Implementation of a true hydrologically functional approach supported by a corpus of systematic and vigorous scientific investigation and engineering analysis. Desire for many more high-visibility demonstration projects ably demonstrating creativity and revealing processes; i.e., need to try and prove techniques. Requirement for shared leadership of new, fresh voices along with a corresponding movement toward embracing a plurality of visions in innovative stormwater management; i.e., adoption of the tradeoff leadership strategy exemplified by geese in flight. Greater inclusion of ethics in professional practice; e.g., movement away from large engineering, end-of-pipe solutions that generate large fees, toward small, dispersed, and less lucrative micromanaged solutions. Realization of the limitations of technological solutions alone (France, 2002, 355-356).

Un approccio alla trasformazione dei paesaggi urbani che intenda sviluppare un’effettiva sensibilità sistemica nei confronti dell’acqua esige una complementare attenzione e cura nei confronti del suolo. Di un tale contesto culturale ed operativo sono evidenti le relazioni con la ricerca della sostenibilità insediativa. Anche il processo con-
