The workshop concerns the enhancement of the historic center of Figline Valdarno, a medium-sized town in the Florence district. The workshop, based on the scientific approach of Ergonomics for Design, uses methods and operative tools for defining the state of the art, identifying the critical issues and proposing innovative ideas. Through the HCD approach, the research objective was the improvement of urban Ergonomics in terms of fruition and organization of space, wayfinding and lighting. The evaluation phase made it possible to identify the current problems and identify needs and design solutions. These solutions have been developed considering users’s needs in relation to the historical context of Figline Valdarno.
