  • Description: The project LIVING LANDSCAPE solves the long-lasting need for recognition, valorization and promotion of the common cultural heritage of the Italian-Slovenian border area, represented by the Karst landscape. The LIVING LANDSCAPE project is innovative, because it places the emphasis on human activities and anthropogenic factors that have through centuries transformed the environment of Karst into its characteristic landscape form. The landscape is threaded both in its material and visible form as well as through its intangible, symbolic and mythical aspects. With the collaboration between the University, agencies for the protection of cultural heritage, local and provincial administrations and a Public Park Service Agency, the joint research, education and pilot activities of the project will provide new materials for the recognition and valorization of the world-known but still insufficiently exploited Karts landscape.
