The constant urbanization of the last century has led cities to face challenges in terms of urban sustainability. In recent years, the di- scussion on alternative mobility has been the subject of numerous studies, showing that the concept of urban walkability can be used as an additional support in planning sustainable cities. This is what the UN also aims for, among other topics, in its SDGs’ 2030 Agenda. This paper aims to report the first results of an ongoing research whose general objective is to develop and define a multi-methodological approach able to assess urban walkability in order to guide planning projects in terms of sustainability. First the walkability issue will be argued and second an in-depth investigation of the walkability topic will be provided, understanding its definition in the scientific panorama, how is evaluated and how its evaluation could be useful in urban transformation processes. This preliminary research reported the first fundamental step towards the definition of a multi-methodological approach able to evaluate the walkability of a territory in order to guide future urban projects.
