THE ART OF DRY STONE WALLING HAS BEEN INSCRIBED IN UNESCO INTANGIBLE HERITAGE
UNESCO has inscribed "The Art of Dry Stone Walling" in the list of Intangible Cultural Heritage as they represent "a harmonious relationship between man and nature".
In the UNESCO's motivation “The art of dry stone walling concerns the knowhow related to making stone constructions by stacking stones upon each other, without using any other materials except sometimes dry soil. […]Such structures testify to the methods and practices used by people from prehistory to today to organize their living and working space by optimizing local natural and human resources. They play a vital role in preventing landslides, floods and avalanches, and in combating erosion and desertification of the land, enhancing biodiversity and creating adequate microclimatic conditions for agriculture. […] Dry stone structures are always made in perfect harmony with the environment and the technique exemplifies a harmonious relationship between human beings and nature.”.
This is a great recognition for Valtellina, thanks also to the work of Cristina Scarpellini, who besides being the mastermind behind Scerscé wines is also President of the ProVinea Foundation, which aims to safeguard the typical vineyard terraces on the Rhaetian side of the Valtellina Alps.
