New planning policies are requested to exploit existing housing stock. There are initiatives aiming at using more efficiently present urban spaces and buildings. It might be easy to focus on abandoned spacesbut this paper rather focus on transformation coming openly form public and private spontaneous ideas (the unplanned). Many studies have worked on the issue of density, the consumption of soil, the exploitation of existing assets as an opportunity for sustainable development of the city, promoting initiatives that would preserve and convert existing buildings through the use of infill spaces. Some examples could be the renovation roofing and building envelope, with rooftops, additions and retrofit. This phenomenon has led to new forms of development strategies of the urban fabric which it might be called” acupuncture strategy”, focusing on the gap rather than the voids. It is proposed a reflection about transforming existing cities according to this new planning and design strategy
