Feasibility study for the valorisation of the fortified systems in the Verona area

Output 4.2.1

Workgroup coordination: Ing. Elisabetta Pellegrini, manager of development and territory planning, Province of Verona

The Province of Verona from several years promotes, develops and ensures its support to initiatives and projects to protect and enhance the historic heritage of the fortified systems present within the territory of Verona. For this reason, since the beginning, we expressed a full commitment to the project "Forte Cultura", implemented in the frame of the Central Europe Programme.

In this context, we present this study for the valorization of the fortified system of the Verona area, elaborated to implement the research and knowledge related to a historical and cultural heritage of double value: on one side a characteristic element of the territory, on the other that of real identity element for the community. Among the primary objectives of the Province there is a real desire to enhance, through a specific and targeted action, the invaluable historical and architectural heritage of military origin on which we are today fortunate custodians and witnesses.

The fortified systems have marked in an unmistakable way the places where we live, not only from a physical and geo-political point of view but also, and above all, from the cultural and human perspective, assuming the extraordinary value of cultural and environmental heritage that today we undoubtedly recognize.
