Abstract

The dilapidation of building stock that has come to characterise the hillside and mountainous settlements of the region of Abruzzo in recent decades is a sign of forms of economic decline and negative demographic trends. In this situation, it is difficult to imagine occasions for a turn in events triggered by endogenous forces; instead, there is a sense of the need for public intervention and targeted economic-social policies. Indeed, in settlements lacking important resources for tourism and/or infrastructures for winter sports, it is very difficult to imagine their recovery through interventions entrusted solely to the market: often negligible property values suggest the inconvenience of any building requalification project in relation to asset or income-based objectives of valorisation. The reconstruction process put into place after the 2009 earthquake could have been interpreted and implemented within a vaster programme of interventions based on clear and defined strategic capable of guaranteeing prospects for the long-term relaunching and development of damaged areas. The initial idea behind the Reconstruction Plans appeared to confirm a similar approach. In reality, reconstruction is proceeding as a simple programme of building recovery. The paper develops this thesis by attempting to demonstrate how after a decade later the 2009 earthquake, the funding provided to date has not produced particularly relevant effects on local economics and dempgraphics.
