STUDYVISIT VALCONCA 7-8-9 september 2013 VALCONCA/RIMINI

For quite some time, the Province of Rimini placed the promotion and valorization of environment and landscape at the heart of territorial policies. The admirable intention was not only to leave to future generations a portion of the territory as much preserved and refund as possible, but also to propose to local communities economic incentives based on the humans’ recovery of identity and identification with the territory from which they came and belong to. The CONCA PROJECT, developed after years of commitment and work of both technicians and administrators with the active involvement of citizens, consists of a unitary project for the valley, made of concrete actions (the GAV - Main Green Ring - system of greenways), integrated managerial proposals (the Protected Landscape of the Conca River), good practices shared for a consistent territorial transformation (the guidelines notebook), the engagement of local stakeholders (from art workshops to the maintenance of the area) and of events (the festival “A passo d’uomo” - “At a walking pace”). A project which is able to make the territory attractive because of its identity and recognizability.

The days of 7th and 8th will be dedicated to tours and trips and the morning of the 9th to a technical meeting and possibly a related visits. Please bring with you comfortable clothes, shoes and equipment to protect yourself from the sun, because we’ll participate in some trips on the mountains (don’t worry, nothing really extreme!).

HIKE: “CAMMINANDO TRA LE ERBE E I CAMPI / HIKING BETWEEN ERBS AND FIELDS” Along a track that starts from the Albereto Castle, among panoramic views, fields, olive tree groves and badlands, we’ll be fascinated by field erbs, learning how to classify them. The Albereto Castle overlooks a small ridge and recalls, with its name, the vegetation that covers the slope towards Marano. A path with medium difficulties, short sections with moderate height differences and a 6km lenght. The track, not included in the network of protected areas, offers the most beautiful panoramas and perspectives on the valley. Monumental centuries-old trees are standing along the track, protected by the Emilia-Romagna region. By: Adriana Ugolini - environmental expert / Guide: Angelo Colangelo - Cavalieri del mare

Opened to sighed and blind persons, the sensory hike will be in the dark, with all participants blindfolded. The hike-performance will simulate the life of village inhabitants, forced to escape during the II World War bombings and take refuge in the forests and tuff-stone caves. The hike will take place around the fields, the stream and the historical village. It is conceived as an experimental laboratory to make the hike tracks accessible to persons with reduced mobility and low vision. The hike is designed for 10 blindfolded participants, each accompanied by a guide. The director, Sandra Holtzappel, will provide for instructions to guide the participants during the performance. Whenever a participant won’t feel at ease, it will be possible to remove the bandage and procede with the hike, following the group and walking at the end of the line.

HIKE: “LE SELVE DEL RIO MONTEPIETRINO / THE WOODS OF THE MONTEPIETRINO STREAM” A hike through the wild woodlands along the stream. During the hike the participants will have to overstep trunks and trees and to cross the river stream, with a guided tour of an ex-refuge cut into the tuff-stone. Abilities to walk on mixed grounds and surfaces are required, as well as suitable clothes, long trousers and trekking shoes. This is one of the most natural and beautiful track of the Conca Valley and, besides it’s mixed soil, many amateurs of different ages (15-80) where able to walk through the trail controlling the group speed. It is a very stimulating hike, historically part of the CAI network. After the establishment of the Conca Valley as a “paesaggio naturale e seminaturale protetto / a light conservation area” the Province of Rimini decided to foster its re-naturalization, reducing maintenance to the bare minimum. Along the trail there will be numerous animals’ tracks. Guide: Alfredo Galeazzi - Associazione Tartufai Terre delle Piante Superiori At the end of the forest, a navette will pick our group up, to avoid the last complex walk uphill, and drive us to the restaurant.

HIKE-PERFORMANCE: “L’ADORAZIONE, IL CANTO DEI CORPI / THE WORKSHIP, THE BODIES’ SONG” A production by “Movimento Centrale” in collaboration with “A passo d’uomo”. A work-in-progress itinerary designed by Jean-Luc Nancy. The project started while meeting Roberto Borghesi, the Italian translator of the book “L’Adoration” by JeanLuc Nancy, with the intention to create a sound and video installation where the observer would abandon his confortable and safe position as audience to play an active role on scene. The result is a mental and body action, a passage, an unusual circular way. The show will take place along a track without height differences, starting by the stream and flowing into a small valley where the final performance will be played at sunset. The area is enclosed in the “paesaggio naturale e seminaturale protetto / a light conservation area” of the Conca Valley where the Province of Rimini supported interventions of reforestation and soil bioengineering.
