Dal fondovalle al crinale: ripensare il sistema insediativo a partire dalla matrice storico-paesaggistica
The project propose a new access to the medieval town of Vinci through the ancient crest-path. This will assure a higher landscape quality in comparison to the main roads of the adjoining valleys. The project also propose an ecological land settlement criterion for the surrounding rural areas. The ecological value should descend from the following aspects: hills areas are not menaced by the flood as river-side areas are; new settlements must grant highs energy-saving performances, reusable building materials and a very low visual impact, in order to respect the characteristics of the rural landscape. A competition procedure could be used to assign construction rights in order to select the plans that better respond to the ecological characteristics previously listed.
