Abstract

The coastal-mining landscape of Sulcis in Sardinia. The ruins of Nebida’s landing and Laveria Lamarmora, perspectives of preservation and reuse. Pier Francesco Cherchi1 1Départment DICAAR, University of Cagliari, e-mail : pfcherchi@unica.it web: http://people.unica.it/pierfrancescocherchi/ Summary. The industrial archeology of Nebida is a presence that over time has taken on the strength of an extraordinary icon of the entire coastal-mining landscape of Sulcis, a south-western region of ​​Sardinia. The programs for the recovery, enhancement and revitalization of the Sulcis mining ports and landings, represent an occasion of great significance for rethinking in an evolutionary sense a model of growth and development of the territory. Among them, the compound of Nebida’s Laveria Lamarmora and coastal landing in Nebida are one of the most emblematic and distinctive nodes. In 1897, the Società Anonima di Nebida, dealership company of the homonymous mine, completed the construction of the great Laveria, one of the most modern infrastructures for selecting and sorting minerals in Europe at the time. A few dozen meters from the plant, the remains of the small coastal landing, a final knot of the production process, are still a visible presence. From this spot, minerals were transported to the port of Carloforte, a junction between the Sulcis mining industry and the peninsular market. In 1924, the construction of a more modern and efficient mineral loading dock, Porto Flavia, led to the abandonment of Nebida's mine and its infrastructure, today reduced to the state of ruin. Over Nebida's Laveria and landing has been developed a design-based research anchored to the historical knowledge of places and projected in recognition of scenarios that might ensure persistence and preservation. Nebida is an opportunity to give shape to an idea of ​​design conceived as a critical and cultural act. The research doesn't aim in defining operational tools, but rather in testing theoretical assumptions and gradients of a shift towards conservation and reuse scenarios compatible with the values ​​of the existing structures and functional to an idea of ​​the future socially, economically and culturally sustainable.
