The following contribution reports some results of research applied to the city of Udine. Identifying the existing critical issues to be solved allows possible urban transformation as an essential requirement to guarantee an inclusive living. The urban monitoring considers the pedestrian connective spaces - part of a selected urban fabric - while identifying the different needs and perceptions of a wide spectrum of users. Therefore, this is an analysis of urban accessibility and porosity aimed at defining a design methodology that allows the subjective assessment of the different and possible users; the limitations related to accessibility, the possible advisable itineraries, and urban permeability are highlighted in the research. The research considers experimental data corresponding to different ‘users’ with reduced kinetic and visual skills differentiated by gender and age.
