The paper aims to analyze the spaces of «greater autonomy» that could be recognized to the regions in the government of the territory in implementation of the asymmetry clause referred to in the article 116, third paragraph, of the Constitution. Analyzed and delimited the material boundaries of the government of the territory that, as a result of the complex dynamics that affected the implementation of the article 117 of the Constitution, has gradually been redefined in the light of the relationship with the other legislative competence that insist on the territory, we observe how the way to acquire greater autonomynecessarily passes through the precise definition of strategic public policies for development and regional growth that respond, that is, to region’s specific characteristics and immediately functional to its development, enhancing the autonomist polycentrism expressed by the Constitution. In this perspective, the urban regeneration, which due to its transversality is placed at the crossroads of a plurality of public policies (sustainability, environment, cultural heritage), is identified as an area in which asymmetric autonomy could usefully unfold to allow the regions to acquire «further special forms and conditions of autonomy» in the definition of territorial policies.
