A permanent laboratory for the transformation of a small village!

A new creative regeneration project kicks off! We return to the Marche hinterland after the wonderful experience of Invasioni Contemporanee and Space, to work in the village of Ripatransone – known as the “Belvedere del Piceno” – rich in history and traditions but which today no longer enjoys the cultural ferment that characterized it in the past eras. The “Ripatransone Community Hub” (RCH) project intends to give new strength to the territory through the valorisation of 3 key places in the city – the former Mattatoio Comunale, the Palazzo del Podestà and Piazza Donna Bianca de’ Tharolis – which will be transformed into inclusive and engaging cultural and civic spaces.

The aim is to create a permanent, widespread and experimental laboratory and to promote a new way of experiencing the small villages of the internal areas. How? Through a transferable, replicable and sustainable local valorization model.

During 4 years, will be carried out a series of infrastructural, social and cultural integrated interventions which will act to increase the attractiveness and the economy of the village.

In the coming months the MeP Team will be involved in numerous activities starting from the work of strengthening the entire local educational community made up of schools, museums and associations involved in activities to promote and enhance cultural heritage.
The methodology of Territorial Storytelling will help us in a path of resignification of local identity and of valorization of heritage. We will work with the young men and women of Ripatransone to rediscover traditions and to create new narratives useful for promoting local beauties. Through itinerant storytelling sessions we will offer moments of in-depth analysis of local history and we will create new tourist itineraries enriched with podcasts, multimedia products and new tourist signage.
We will work together with local realities to increase the cultural offer – workshops, itineraries, storytelling paths, courses and other events – which will make the village attractive also for citizens and new tourists.
