COMUNITERRAE is a participated cultural project that was set up as a continuation of the construction of the Community Map of Terre di Mezzo, started in January 2017 and promoted by Associazione Ars.Uni.Vco and Val Grande National Park, under the European Charter of Sustainable Tourism and with the contribution of Piedmont Region.
One of the main objectives is to stimulate the participation of local communities in the processes of conservation and enhancement of the tangible and intangible heritage of the Terre di Mezzo. The first phase saw the 235 inhabitants of 10 Municipalities of the Ossola and Intrasca Valleys (VB) actively contributing to the definition of the shared identity of the mountain territories between the valley floor and the highest altitudes.
COMMUNITERRAE starts from there, from the need to communicate the identity of the communities and the territory of the Terre di Mezzo. Project activities aim to better define this new cultural landscape that, beyond municipal boundaries, collects and directs community energies towards a re-appropriation of their heritage, which thus becomes a resource for local development and for sustainable tourism.
The project has obtained the official mark of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018, contributing to the achievement of European objectives aimed at encouraging cultural, people-centred, inclusive, forward-looking, more integrated and sustainable approaches to cultural heritage, promoting participatory heritage management models.
