A “Second Opinion” On Elio Altare’s Cinque Terre Project

A second-opinion on the Elio Altare project in Cinque Terre http://bit.ly/TBpkbN , by the wonderful Eric Guido.

What it is, you might ask?   Well, the short version is:

First vine louse, then progressive aging of the working population, socio-economic changes, and hydrogeological instability, started the decline of agricultural production and subsequently the reduction and abandonment of cultivated land in what must be one of the wonders of the world.  With desertion comes lack of maintenance, and lack of maintenance in turn has led to the dry stone walls collapsing with serious risks of landslip, evidenced by the natural disaster hitting the region last year.

Many has tried to draw attention to the loss of a historical and cultural landscape, and no one more so than Elio Altare, who is having a go at resurrecting the prosperity of the five lands with wine, passion, basic economics, and longevity as his ingredients
