Stories in the woods

The Project
The aim of the project is to create a free and accessible thematic itinerary within the Monte Ginezzo Regional Forestry Agricultural Complex in Cortona. Cortona is one of the most famous tourist resorts of Tuscany and the province of Arezzo. Its mountain territory is untouched, but almost unknown.

The site, formerly Natura 2000, is designated as SCI (Site of Community Interest), SIR (Regional Interest Site) and SPA (Special Protection Zone). In particular, the site has been entrusted by La Fabbrica del Sole Scarl, which has given the homonymous ONLUS the management of public spaces. In the last few years the two organizations have carried out renovation and securing of buildings, cleaning of the woods, accommodation of pedestrian traffic, cycle paths and paths. The complex has thus returned to be lived by tourists and locals.

The thematic route is designed as a circular path, about 3 km, called Stories in the Woods that allows everyone, tourists, schools, families, sportsmen, to enjoy the land in a sustainable way and make a new experience immersed in nature. An eco-philosophical path, enhanced and enriched with stories, images and poems collected by a wooden poster, which integrates thoughts and suggestions and information on the territory. A narrative path on the forest, its history, its ecological significance.
