The Mediterranean cities in particular, thanks to the concentration of complexity / diversity and multiplicity are the most suitable places to start a transition so as to turn the contradictions of the urban system into an opportunity for transformation. The process of knowledge based on the observation of the cities becomes fundamental in a context such as that of Palermo, which is characterized by growing levels of complexities and uncertainty. In this context a critical process has been initiated just to recognize the city of Palermo and its main characters. Starting from this process several priority elements and different alternatives have been identified with continuous reviewing just to find out the best ways to reach the targets. Observation multiplies preferences and allows the combination of several values and the involvement of many participants as valid support, able to operate in risky situations.
