Ambito A

Soggetto Proponente
Comune di Varena - A² studio Trentino, Italia

The area involved in the initiative is part of the Dolomites UNESCO World Heritage site and consists of important wetland habitats included in the Natura 2000 network, an alpine lake and the southernmost Pinus cembra forest in Europe. The programme pursues a sustainable development model based on the considerable natural assets of the area and on principles of integrated, participatory and negotiated planning. The project includes measures for the restructuring of the road infrastructure, the architectural and energy renovation of existing buildings, and the creation of integrated mobility systems. The goal is to create a model of tourism with a very strong identity, through measures of landscape governance, restoration and interconnection of open spaces, as well as reinterpretation of local cultural roots. The planning is based on relations of complementarity between the resources of the natural habitat (hydrology, geomorphology, stands) and those of the man-made habitat (lad use, type of settlement, collective spaces, road network), in order to reduce habitat fragmentation and develop short supply chains. The project is an example of how to operate to reduce the effects of mobility on Dolomites passes, by burying the part of road that currently crosses the built-up area and runs along the lake.
