In the last few decades,the mountain dwellers, for either economic or working necessity, have more and more gone to live down into the valleys. Maybe nowadays it’s possible to re-create the conditions to go back to live on the mountain, onto the High Lands.
This is the main objective of the Return Project. A different way of thinking of mountain economics, to make possible the return of people investing in the mountain and on the mountain.
Coming back also means “to give back”, a feeling of gratitude towards the mountain, a way to return value to the territory by means of rebuilding the components that keep united a community. To re-create that “common feeling” that means so much to a group of people, that makes relive an alpine pasture, a village, a territory.
