Villa Viva Webinar | Are rural and remote areas the future of Europe?
Europe is full of heritage sites that silently claim a new life, especially in rural and remote areas. Who does not know at least one of those? It could be that castle in the middle of nowhere or that ancient mansion in the village where you were born.

It is common to dream about what they could become if revitalised, but often the dream quickly crashes with a lack of vision, maybe a poor community engagement, or simply because “this is not in a big city so nobody cares”.

But what if those remote, rural locations had the potential to become the cradle to grow solutions to our most important challenges as humanity? What if we needed to step back from the chaos of our cities to reinvent the way we live?

In this webinar, you will discover the incredible story of Villa Buonaccorsi, a neglected 5 hectares Villa of the XVI century with one of the most important baroque gardens in Italy, located in an underrated rural region of central Italy.

In a roundtable format, local citizens and international experts will debate the Villa Buonaccorsi case, trying to answer the following questions:

What are the secret ingredients behind the unique story of the Villa?
Why did the citizen mobilization succeed in such a difficult challenge?
Why and how local and global communities should claim cultural heritage as a fundamental human right?
How this experience could serve the replication of similar cases, in other remote areas of Europe, and potentially sketch out a network of similar initiatives?

Citizens, professionals, and representatives of local institutions: if you want to learn more about how to activate rural and remote sites and communities, or if you are willing to push such an initiative and want to connect with similar cases to collaborate, this webinar if for you!
