Creative interactions between places and communities: experiences of reactivating inland areas

Katia Fabbricatti


This paper describes a research experience, financed and promoted by GAL CILSI through PSR Campania 2007-13 funds, focused on testing groundbreaking activities of social and economic reactivation in the inland areas. The research experience involves a network of towns of the Alta Irpinia, of which Aquilonia is the leading town. The technological approach of the research develops the dynamic dimension of the settlement system throughout a circular path in which the distinctiveness of the places and the resources are stimulated to generate new occasions for growth and new requests of development and research. The experience restores a leading role to the local craftsmen and small and medium businesses, reactivating a technological culture lying dormant to generate spin off and new economies.
