Tuesday September 19th in Pistoia, inside the historical Palazzo de’ Rossi, the presentation of the Masterplan for the valorisation of the Valdinievole, a project by Stefano Boeri Architetti for the Fondazione Caript, is held.
The Valdinievole is the territory between the provinces of Pistoia, Florence, Lucca and Pisa, administratively divided into 11 municipalities. Stretching over more than 260 square kilometres, with a population of about 120,000 inhabitants, the Valdinievole area is characterised by common elements from a historical, landscape, economic and infrastructural point of view, with a majority of agricultural areas and natural and wooded areas – while urbanised areas occupy less than a quarter of the territory.
Stefano Boeri Architetti’s proposal for the redevelopment and valorisation of the Valdinievole fits into this context: starting from the territory’s criticalities and potentialities, the project aims at outlining a common strategic perspective for the area, which brings together polarities, excellences and landscapes from the physical, social, environmental and energy points of view.
Stefano Boeri Architetti’s project for the Valdinievole is intended as a device of social connectivity, networking local services and resources; of physical connectivity, thanks to the creation of a cycle and sustainable infrastructure; and of cultural and technological connectivity, enhancing the existing heritage and favouring the development of energy communities and the implementation of renewable and sustainable production systems, useful to make the territory self-sufficient in terms of energy.
The news was also reported by Il Tirreno.
