2005 international conference on development in rural mountain areas

Jan 27, 2005 / alpMedia
From 1 - 3 September 2005 the Italian RURALIA association is holding a two-day conference in the Piedmont entitled "Architecture and Landscape in Rural Mountain Areas and their Social and Economic Development". The objective of the conference is to consider proposals for saving villages from decline and rehabilitating rural buildings for new uses.
Discussions will also focus on the implementation of landscape protection and development in the case of land that farmers have abandoned, and on ways of revitalising rural communities and the regional economy. A one-day pre-conference workshop will be held as a brainstorming session for a concrete project for the Borbera Valley, which is an attractive location in terms of scenery, the local culture and architecture but is threatened by rural exodus. The event will have the support of research staff from a number of Italian universities and the English Heritage.
