Mountain rural heritage:

The Latin root of word heritage is "pater": father. Heritage is therefore the common inheritance of all what left us our fathers from time immemorial.

Heritage is not only a castle, a church... A "monument" must be replaced in a context to be included and to deliver all its sense.

We will keep four inseparable aspects:

  • Landscape (natural or manufactured by man's hand ).
  • Tools and know-how.
  • Products.
  • Architecture (rural, mountain, strengthened, serviceman, religious).

Under the ash brood the embers,

Under the waste land treasures hide,

Under ruins memories hide,

Under the dust life can come back to life.

Stones remember...

Make the effort to watch, to smell, to listen...

And lead to guide your steps...
