The volume shows the results of a relevant research aimed at
evaluating the relationship between the public spaces of the Florentine
hospital of Santa Maria Nuova and the perception of environmental quality by
users (patients, family, and staff) expressed in terms of pleasantness,
restoration, identity, attachment to the place.
