Abstract

Carbonia became a city thanks to the huge coal mine. It brought great progress to the area but had to be abandoned during the mining crisis, after which the city went in a steep decline. Nonetheless, this twentieth-century company town found the will to create a new future for itself by using its roots as a container for new and imaginative growth. The recovery project was able to involve the community, the urban heritage, the history of the work done there, the industrial archaeology of the entire coal basin, with its imposing visual and symbolic meaning, to highlight an internationally acclaimed modern landscape which received the Council of Europe Landscape Award 2010-2011.
