Abstract

What future for terrace crops.The demographic increase and the expansion of cities, the evolution of society, have led to a massive exploitation of the territory through increasingly complex and invasive methodologies with the consequent destruction of the environment also fueled by speculation and political interests. In this way those ancient techniques that respected and improved the territory using the materials present on site were dispersed; examples on the territory are the construction of dry stone walls to create terraces, small buildings used as stables and barns, divisions of borders. If we want a better future, we must look for solutions that can bring a benefit to the environment, thus creating new jobs, there must be greater collaboration between institutions, voluntary associations, universities, making the bureaucratic machine leaner and applying more common sense. These were the principles and the spirit that animated the restoration of the Royal Palace of Venaria Reale, a town adjacent to Turin. The way has been opened: we must have the will to be inspired by these principles.
