Mountains, residential and tourism: changes and perspectives
The territory is not all the same and living is not always the same thing. The mountain also presents a vertical landscape, the surfaces implemented by the slope of the hillsides. There is a need for a different urban project that coexists with the “slope” and therefore uses a network and a system of micro-urbanization and communications (from pathways to local networks to energy used extensively from minor sources). The issue of structurally seasonal residency, but not only tourist.

Agriculture and crafts in the mountains
The themes of the fight against depopulation and desertification, with the testimony of positive projects, which concern mountain agriculture (Ager projects, resilient valleys), with the system of connected micro-communities. Not only the distance caused by Covid, but the distance between the settlements as a character of the territory and an opportunity more than a limit for an economy with elements of circularity.

The planning and cultural capacity on the mountain territory
A rich regulatory framework for the mountain territories that must allow a real change of pace for communities. The new or old design languages and the recovery of ancient roads (military roads and ancient transhumance routes). So not only and not so much different rules, but a different hierarchy of rules. An ability to collaborate and experiment with new cross-border solutions, a precise need for renewal and growth, innovation and green policies for mountain communities. Competitiveness is not between Alpine or Apennine valleys, but between development-oriented parts of Europe. It is no more difficult here than elsewhere. Not less simple here than in Voralberg, in Haute-Savoie, in Tyrol. Cultural capacity still ranks first in priorities.
