Article
Full-text available
Cities are responsible for about 75% of the global greenhouse gas emissions. Various materials and energy sources, which are mostly produced by the rural areas rather than the cities, are consumed by the cities, and their waste is released back into the rural areas, thereby causing evident environmental damages. The Rural–Urban Metabolism approach...
Article
Full-text available
The contexts addressed by the Italian National Strategy for Inner Areas (SNAI) often lack successful regional policies and systemic territorial approaches to achieve effective transformations towards resilient territories. These issues are addressed by the ongoing project "B4R Branding4Re-silience." This contribution aims to present and discuss its...
Article
Full-text available
In the last decades in Italian mountainous regions, forests are invading abandoned pastures and cultivated surfaces that often played a key ecological role for biodiversity conservation, a complex land-use change phenomenon. To improve sustainable regional planning and management it is increasingly important to quantify the phenomenon and classify...
Book
Full-text available
This book stems ffrom the research activities carried out throughout the LUIGI project (EU Interreg Alpine Space). It thoroughly illustrates various ecological, economic, governance, political and educational challenges related to Green Infrastructure, paying particular attention to the geographic area of the Alpine Space. Being a collective effort...
Article
Full-text available
Urban green infrastructure (UGI) has a key role in improving human and environmental health in cities and contributes to several services related to climate adaptation. Accurate localization and quantification of pervious surfaces and canopy cover are envisaged to implement UGI, address sustainable spatial planning, and include adaptation and mitig...

The “System and sustainable Approach to virTuous interaction of Urban and Rural LaNdscapes” (SATURN) project is exploring how resilience at a city scale might be achieved and how the issues of landscape fragmentation, governance and land management can be addressed resulting in a sustainable future. The EIT Climate-KIC SATURN project is based on a...

Chapter
In recent years, attention has grown on the importance of the food heritage-related themes within landscape, cultural and social dynamics. This paper presents a theoretical introduction explaining the concept of foodscape as an integrated system of ecological network, connected to the role of local food production for the recovery of abandoned area...
Article
Full-text available
Contemporary food systems face several paradoxes regarding equity and sustainability. Considering food production—an issue that simultaneously affects both the supply (production) and demand (consumption) sides—several cities have begun to implement new strategies, called Urban Food Policies. These approaches aim to address the various challenges p...
Article
Full-text available
The landscape has been described as a 'blind spot' when examined in light of regional strategies. The immense potential of peri-urban and rural hinterlands to counter the climate emergency is therefore also overlooked. The European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT)Climate-KIC's (Knowledge and Innovation Community) System and sustainable...

Project
HelpFood 4.0 aims to test and demonstrate the importance of designing, supporting and running social infrastructure to make food circular sustainability more shared, practicable and adopted in everyday life. To do so, the project propose a structured methodological approach to scale up and replicate the socio-digital innovation experimented into selected RIS countries (Italy, Spain, Portugal). The project explores the role of food as an element of reconnection between farmers, citizens and “eaters” (i.e., citizens more aware of sustainable food issues) through the promotion of Community-Supported Agriculture models as sustainable examples of production, distribution, and consumption of food.
Project
VISION Today, the fragmented landscape management governance leads to uncompleted climate strategies where cities are analysed independently from their natural landscape. This leads to a bad management of the city surrounding lands which have good carbon sequestration, food and biomass production and risk mitigation potential. This project is based on the experience of 3 cities forming the consortium: Trento (Italy), Birmingham (UK) and Gothenburg (Sweden) and it aims to reintegrate the natural assets within the city climate change impact strategy and to expand and feed its model by creating a wider initiative.

The objectives of the projects are threefold: > Establish a strong narrative with public and private stakeholders in order to reconnect them with their landscape identity and geographical (urban, rural, regional, territorial) characteristics. The project will involve more than 50 stakeholders coming from different sectors and territories; > Build up a comprehensive and flexible framework to guide cities to implement adapted projects about multi-functional use at different scale on the land surrounding the cities, taking into account land use assets and the cultural identity in their surrounding landscape. It will include tools and metrics to support decision making; > Make the initiative economically sustainable and scalable through scouting actions of funding and collaboration opportunities and the creation of comprehensive tools and initiatives for capacity building.
