As part of the strategies to promote health in urban areas, the Italian Society of Hygiene (SItI) has updated its recommendations for "healthy, safe and sustainable housing". They were issued by an ad hoc SitI working group on the basis of the best available evidence retrieved from a review of the scientifc and legal literature on the topic and in line with World Health Organisation, European Union, and other international bodies statements. SItI document includes recommendations for environmental comfort, mental and social wellbeing, environmental protection as well as the safety of people who dwell houses. In addition to typical issues (such as relative humidity parameters, ventilation, and safety rules), SItI recommendations address innovative aspects such as building compatibility between different functions, building safety management and green area design. In this context, SItI recommendations emphasise the need of a strengthened interaction between architects and public health experts to ensure the complete wellbeing in houses where people spend more than 50% of their lives.
