Urban Landscape Recycle in Salento

The innovative didactic activity consists in a tour aimed at deepening the analysis and understanding of a landscape, open to all students but especially to those interested in “Urban and territorial recycling”, “Environmental design” ad “Recycle and landscape design” and in topics related to the future of Southern Italy landscape. 

The field trip concept, organised in a two days walk along predefined itineraries, supported by local experts explaining the issues and opportunities of the area, has the goal of introducing the participants to an experiential and multisensory learning of the landscape, allowing for the enhancement of the students’ research methodologies and their enquiring potentials as well as their interpretive tools.

In particular the field trip will offer the chance to investigate and get to know a series of unauthorized coastal settlements along 20 km of the Adriatic See in Lecce Municipality. These settlements were developed starting form the Seventies as second homes linked to the inland towns sited a few kilometres from the coast.

Today they show serious problems such as lack of public facilities, poor construction, inadequate and insufficient infrastructures and environmental degradation and are in need of a regeneration proposal.
