XI International Forum Le Vie dei Mercanti: Heritage, Architecture, LanDesign

Focus on Conservation, Regeneration, Innovation


The XI edition of the International Forum Le Vie dei Mercanti entitled Heritage, Architecture, LanDesign aims to promote an international debate on local experiences relating to the issues of conservation, regeneration and innovation in heritage, architecture, landscape and design.

In recent years, technological developments have revolutionized not only the forms that surround us but also our daily routines. However, this new global language often does not take into consideration the identity and vocation of the area, which require appropriate courses of action in relation to both the individual context and local traditions.

The historical memory of the characteristics of the identity, local materials, building traditions as well as the tangible and intangible cultural heritage is a repertoire of signs to draw from in order to operate within each historical context and consequently enhance its uniqueness.

The topics are:
1. Heritage:
Tangible and intangible dimensions, Heritage management, History, Culture, Collective identity, Memory, Archaeology, Cultural landscapes.

2. Architecture:
Survey, Imaging, 3D modeling, Techniques for analysis, diagnostics and monitoring, Preservation, Restoration, Conservation, Architecture Design, Technologies, Building materials.

3. LanDesign:
Landscape design, Sustainable design, Environmental design, Eco design, Low-cost design, Design for all.
