In 2014 Bologna adopted the «Regulation on the cooperation between citizens and the administration for the maintenance and regeneration of urban common goods», which has become an administrative good practice at the national and international level. In the meantime a collaborative model called «Collaborare è Bologna» was established. An important part of this model is «CO-Bologna», which is focused on supporting the administration's efforts to promote civic cooperation and develop a methodology whose aim is to encourage local public authorities to be inspired by citizens' imagination. This contribution will focus on the CO-Bologna process and on the methodological aspects related to the applied research project «CO-città».
