Rich Knowledge of the landscape in the Cembra Valley
Every landscape has many stories to tell: work and the relationship between man and environment. In the landscape all individual stories are collected they become collective heritage. This means that studying the landscape leads to know the area, the people who live in it, its values, its specificity, its history and its evolution.
On 4 May, there will be a European conference on the terraced landscape entitled "Working the landscape. Terraces and stone wall among identity and values", which will take place in the Cembra Valley, at Museo Casa del Porfido in Albiano. The conference aims to deepen the analysis of the economic, agricultural and touristic worth of the terraced landscape.
"This is an initiative that helps to better understand the concept of landscape, conceived today as an elaboration of the relationship between man and environment, and how the terraces and terracings are typical of that mountain landscape, where living is very difficlut and where economic activities have characterized thelandscape, both for the cultivation of vines as well as for quarries. Here, then, that reason on the terraced landscape in Trentino means looking to the future of these sectors of agriculture and of all the activities on the slopes. Realizing that the Community and the administrations take charge of this is important, as well as discovering that young people to deal with it is very hopeful. (...) The conference in the Cembra valley will help us to untangle these difficult but fascinating issues. " So Mauro Gilmozzi, head of urban planning, local authorities, staff, public works and roads, concluded the presentaion press conference of the European meeting on terraced landscape entitled "Working the landscape. Terraces and stone walls among identity and values".
The initiative is part of the collaboration between the Cembra Valley Communty and the Global Alliance for the terraced landscape (ITLA), funded by the Autonomous Province of Trento, which in the past conducted research to survey traditional knowledge, to which also the Consortium of Cembrani DOC took place.
