The research deals with perception of the natural environment and quality of life, defined as “combination of material and immaterial resources, of objective and subjective components characterize the human condition” (Allardt, 1981). In particular the study aims to investigate individual’s attitudes related to green areas and public services, defined as “capabilities” (Sen, 1987), that is “dynamic and static condition to access to the resources” (Nussbaum e Sen, 1993). A questionnaire was created on this purpose, composed by two sections: the first part investigates into individual’s attitudes on green areas and public services, using a Likert scale composed by seven levels; the second one investigates on attitudes about creation of news green areas, using a Semantic Differential. The sample was drawn among different Italian cities and towns.
