LET'S TALK ABOUT THE OLD GEOLOGICAL SITES TO PRESERVE THEIR MEMORY

THE TERRITORIAL CONTEXT OF THE TAGGHJATE


THE COMPLEX OF MONTE BELVEDERE-SANT'ELIA-MONTEDORONE THE MUNICIPALITIES OF SAN GIORGIO JONICO, ROCCAFORZATA AND FAGGIANO

(edited by: Prof. G.nni Carafa)

Still on via Vittorio Emanuele, almost in front of the only newsstand (newspaper shop) in the town, is the former seat of the Municipal House, an ancient and very simple architectural structure reachable by a significant climbing staircase in bare stone; the recent restorations have restored all the charm of the time (Photo nr. 47).

Everywhere the country is in the landscape and the landscape is in the country; for example, going up via Skanderbergh, the road to Roccaforzata, and stopping at the intersection with via Matteotti, in correspondence with the old public fountain EAAP (Autonomous Aqueduct Pugliese), (Photo nr. 48) it is possible to delight in the downhill view of the same via opening on the horizon with an amazing view of the west side of Mount Sant'Elia and beyond it of Mount Belvedere (Photo nr. 49-50).

The view is even more suggestive in the height of summer in the strong chromatic components of the spontaneous vegetation: golden yellow, and all the variations of bladder green, as well as limestone gray. Further downstream, on the other hand, it is via Verdi which, opening at the foot of the relief, extends into the ancient sheep track connecting the town with the Tagghjàte di San Giorgio Jonico (Photo nr. 51). which conclude via del Monte and via Trento on the slope of Montedòro and the first tree boundaries of the insistent pine forest.

THE DISPOSED QUARRIES

The last offshoots of the town, towards the hamlet of San Crispieri, open up to a succession of signs of a recent nefarious past of invasive quarry interventions: a real attack on the environment and landscape. The exposed fronts, contrary to the linear trend of the Tagghjàte, rhythmically interrupt the territorial continuity everywhere. Only the natural chromatic re-establishment of the bare rock (washouts) gives back some note of visual acceptance in its variegated earth tones; the remainder is attributable to a mere pitiful industrial archeology, here too, the result of the vicissitudes of a cheerful entrepreneurship that prevailed over the truest demands of the territory and the environment when the cultural awareness of the related outcome was not yet in the public domain . But, then, let us ask ourselves, man
contemporary, here, what does it do, how does it express itself and, above all, how does it stand in the context of the recovery, protection and enhancement of the environmental asset?

    Excuse for that I interfere... At me a similar situation. I invite to discussion.

  5. Zulkisida

    Between us speaking, in my opinion, it is obvious. Try to look for the answer to your question in google.com

    There is something in this. I used to think differently, thanks for the info.
