Welcome to H-Italy, a member of H-Net Humanities & Social Sciences OnLine. H-Italy offers scholars a central source for information and collaboration in the field of Italian history.
The 2017 edition of SEWING A SMALL TOWN will focus on the socio-economic and architectural regeneration of two historical settlements on the hills near the city of Turin. The hilltowns of Bussolino and Bardassano represent two examples of a specific cultural way to build on and with territory. This region is also included in the UNESCO-MaB hill named “Collina Po Man and Biosphere Reserve”.
