For a qualitative leap in the processes of land reorganization, the territory and the community should be regarded as part of an information process through which the human capital deploys all its potential (information society). As a natural consequence, a new identity can be sketched as territory-community-development, resting upon the capability to absorb, process and transfer knowledge for a participated representation of reality, that is reality proposes itself as a social construction synthetically mirrored in a text-project. In this paper we tried essentially to propose some solutions to identify the models needed to match programmatic 'agreements' and linguistic 'agreements'. The aim is twofold: 1) to implement land reorganization through a semeiotic design in order to plan a path whereby individual needs and interests can comply with community needs and interests; 2) on account of the sustainability prerequisite, to allow innovation and conservation to coexist in the town centre in order to respond more effectively to the growing and ever more urgent needs of population.
