A comprehensive approach
Engaging with a territory, with a new project, is an operation that cannot be left incomplete or only focused on an outcome that provides the terrain with visual cover. Clearly it is about exploring all the factors and all the traces that make a place what it is, across all the disciplines that can be put to use.
The vision of a place that is to be transformed takes form through the study of its history, its geography, its geology and its economy. In short, one must carry out a transversal, multidisciplinary reading that is as comprehensive as possible. This means immersing oneself in all available data on the new territory so as to discover its image and identity.
This is a process of analysis and synthesis, leading to the reinvention of history through history, so as to revive and to stitch back together territories that time or the absence of people have too often neglected.
