The Return Project

In the last few decades,the mountain dwellers, for either economic or working necessity, have more and more gone to live down into the valleys. Maybe nowadays it’s possible to re-create the conditions to go back to live on the mountain, onto the High Lands.

This  is the main objective of the Return Project. A different way of thinking of mountain economics, to make possible the return of people investing in the mountain and on the mountain.

Coming back also means “to give back”, a feeling of gratitude towards the mountain, a way to return value to the territory by means of rebuilding the components that keep united a community. To re-create that “common feeling” that means so much to a group of people, that makes relive an alpine pasture, a village, a territory.
