AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course aims to illustrate the main theoretical, methodological and practical tools of local environment and heritage processes.

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The student will acquire specific skills in order to use some of the tools necessary for the definition of new territorial projects, as well as for the activation of local dynamics. It will therefore be able to identify the resources of a territory (tangible or intangible), to analyze their scope in the processes of exploiting local contexts, to choose the most pertinent in the construction of a specific territorial project.

Teaching methods

The course includes lectures (materials present on the web room) and the drafting of an individual paper - a project to enhance the area, a case study - which will be presented in the classroom. Interventions by local actors and / or specialist colleagues are planned in the field of environmental enhancement and local spaces.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

The course is divided into several parts:

- Presentation of conceptual principles and categories concerning the development of territories,

- Analysis of some case studies that apply the previous conceptual principles and categories,

- The presentation of some research on the subject completed or underway in Italy and abroad,

- Presentation of individual papers by students.
