The ArnoLab017 has been build and realised thanks to the close collaboration of the LWC Coordinators, the International Referents and Academic Guests with the Locals, looking alternative strategies based on social practices to conserve the Riverbanks and its cultural landscape value. The participants tested on site the alternative methods, working strictly with the referents of the Local Community, as the Arno River Agency’s technicians, the National Forestry Agency’s referents, some Museums and Cultural Institutions’s responsible, other local artist and creative experts and some minorities, as a group of political refugees and migrants, living temporarily in the Florentine context.
