HORTUS LIZORI

HORTUS LIZORI

The HORTUS LIZORI workshop for European doctorate schools (icar17/15) of design and restoration of small ancient villages took place from 6 to 9 July 2022 with a specific focus on Borgo Lizori (Borgo San Benedetto, Campello sul Clitunno). The workshop focused on landscape representation for the valorisation of the historical and cultural heritage of the hamlet of Lizori. It involved 23 PhD students in the disciplines of project and landscape representation from various Italian and European universities. Led by university professors and designers, the exchange focused on the design of open spaces within the Borgo Lizori. With theoretical lectures and operational support in design, the PhD students divided into groups worked on designing and enhancing various areas of Borgo Lizori. The Hortus Lizori project is the winner of the Meneghetti Award, through which the workshop was financed, and through which the next phases of the project will be funded: an editorial publication and a specific project to keep, in Borgo Lizori, a permanent memory of the study that the doctoral students accomplished on site, according to the SDG’s “4 Quality Education”, “15 Life on Land”, “16 Peace, Justice and strong Institution” and “17 Partnerships for the goals”.
