The role of cities in resisting to the effects of Climate Change has become a central issue in world politics. Towns and metropolis, home for the 50% of the world population (in 2030 will be 70%), are delegated to implement strategies and actions to mitigate and adapt to climate conditions in the next future, increasing the capacity to cope with a changing climate. Europe, and in particular the south, is projected to the exacerbation of high temperatures and drought and a reduction in water availability (IPCC, 2007), an apparent southward shift of temperatures, making the open
spaces of the cities, places hardly livable during the warmer seasons. For vulnerable groups such as children, elders and people with serious diseases, the increase of temperatures provoques illness and death, especially during heatwaves.
