The impact of infrastructures within regional geographies, settlements and environmental issues is crucial for neighbourhood integration and social inclusiveness, especially in “drive- through-cities”, where uncontrolled growth up to progressive abandonment affected regions deprived of development direction. Bearing in mind main renewal policies, the investigation focuses on the case study of Prishtina as a national polarity for Kosova and its internal structure, according to the core international corridors and the rational spatial development planning as a European capital. Prishtina has undergone a role of connection for South-East Europe, energy exploitation and a sequence of domains and regimes, worsened by a total absence of planning. As the capital of a newly recognized country, its current unsolved condition of chaos and instability is producing debates in the European framework: the existing inefficient, contaminated and congested infrastructures up to the detriment of land consumption, greenery and accessibility between districts leave the region in a state of emergency. Prishtina as a multimodal transportation hub (re)shaped as a liveable city is a feasible long- term goal, starting from the recovery of infrastructures as a connective network: accessibility, multimodality and appropriation processes could identify challenges and opportunities towards a “Sustainable Renewal Movement” as a future metropolitan city. Likewise, the perspective of (re)using the obsolete facilities as a resource leads to the discussion of possible overlapping strategies proposed by a low environmental impact approach and a human-scale vision of the city, avoiding, minimizing and managing the urbanization in compliance with international agreements.
