How do we imagine the future of inland and mountain villages? Do we see them as a destination for seasonal tourism and for investment in land and real estate? Or do we want to recover their social, cultural and productive dimension?
In order to set off a process of highland renewal, it is necessary to make food, biodiversity, the landscape and local communities the center of the conversation again. It is necessary to support the creation of businesses by young farmers, livestock breeders and cheesemakers to add authenticity to rural tourism. But that is not enough: it is also necessary to modernize shops and workshops, and valorize the community dimension. In this way it is possible set into motion mechanisms of solidarity, exchange and welcomeness.
