Abstract

The results of the territorial analysis on an agricultural area located in the Province of Matera (Southern Italy) with significant historical and natural interest, (i.e., the “San Giuliano” protected area) are here reported. The study has been focused on the census of farm buildings and related rural infrastructures in this area, even though most of them are currently in a state of abandonment. Indeed, through their potential static and functional recovery - which appears technically feasible, given their intrinsic architectural and structural attributes – they would be re-considered, even owing to the progressively growing tourist vocation of this area, leaded by the attractive role that the City of Matera is currently playing. This analysis has been conducted through the implementation of a Geographical Information System (GIS), associated with detailed survey techniques and dendrochronology analysis of the existing wooden construction elements. Thus, it has been possible to conclude how an adequately supported process of analysis and planning of territory can reveal as a valid tool to be used in decision-making dynamics. This recovery and reuse process would be especially valuable, if conceived in a perspective of new fruition purposes, such as those leading to the achievement of an increased diffused tourist hospitality.
