Abstract

The Dry Walling School of Japan and Canova Association have collaborated since 2017 in organizing two dry wall construction workshops in northern Piedmont. Alongside construction site activities, participants were immersed in a system of different sectors working together to safeguard built heritage but also to re-evaluate local resources from a contemporary perspective. This multidisciplinary approach to rehabilitating traditional heritage has led to initiatives of inclusive local development, and to the promotion of a new figure, one who applies global thinking locally and who is able to grasp the potentials of a given territory.
