Abstract

Urban and periurban regeneration are now conceived as processes that need to combine the renewal of the physical environment with the enhancement of cultural, social and economic conditions. Coherently, initiatives of social innovation and aiming at achieving social impact are acquiring increasing importance, also in light of new hybrid entrepreneurial partnerships and impact investing paradigms. In this framework, the evaluation of social impact represents a key issue. Taking into account the challenges still associated to the measurement of social impact and proposing an original concept of value specifically related to social impact-oriented initiatives, this paper aims to outline the methodological perspectives that could inform an effective evaluation of such types of interventions. The presented concepts are then empirically applied to a selected case study, showing that the explicit integration of social impact objectives into regeneration plans, together with their evaluation, could enhance the overall value of the projects.
