Abstract

Project Carbonia began to take shape at the height of the new climate generated by the European Landscape Convention. The project was based on the assumption that landscapes “considered outstanding as well as everyday or degraded landscapes” must be treated in a unitary fashion embracing the structuring principle of landscape’s territorial significance and consequently, the importance of integrating planning and sustainable management. Carbonia, a foundation city emblem of Sardinia’s industrial modernization in the 1930s, passed from enjoying such rapid growth as to become the region’s third largest city to a crisis that undermined the city’s original identity. It was an epochal crisis, which has progressively reduced the coal district to a context of mining archeology. Since 2001, the municipality has promoted a complex project for the renewal of these “landscapes of modernity”, based on a program of material actions, management tools and economic and educational promotional activity seeking to create a virtuous merger of the area’s historical and industrial vocation with a more contemporary model of sustainable territorial development (founded on landscape, environment, clean energy, modern architecture and industrial archeology). Carbonia Landscape Machine is based on four highly integrated strategies: • recognition of a cultural landscape: planning framework for the regeneration of the city’s Modernist urban and mining heritage through sustainable co-planning • quality urban landscape: regenerating the city’s historic mining and urban landscape • city of sustainability research and development: repositioning Carbonia within the world’s burgeoning green economy • cultural center/living landscape museum/public arts program: transforming the city’s industrial heritage and urban identity into a contemporary cultural center with a variegated offer of museum-related cultural activities These strategies have been highly effective in rehabilitating, recovering and renewing Carbonia’s mining landscape. In fact, the actions undertaken within the framework of Project Carbonia have focused on Carbonia’s principal public assets: • the great Serbariu Mine and its landscape as an industrial machine • the garden-city company town of Carbonia and its satellite villages with their public spaces and civic monuments. Project Carbonia: Landscape Machine is the winner of the Landscape Award 2011 of the Council of Europe, “considering the exhaustive and multi-scale development of the project”.
