Aestimum 2020-07-03T17:04:54+00:00 Enrico Marone Open Journal Systems <div> <p class="Body"><strong><em>Aestimum</em></strong>&nbsp;is a peer-reviewed Journal dedicated to the methodological study of appraisal and land economics. Established in 1976 by the Italian Association of Appraisers and Land Economists, which was legally recognized by Ministerial Decree, March 1993. Topics of interests include rural, urban and environmental appraisal, evaluation of public investments and land use planning. All the areas under discussion are addressed to the International scene. The interdisciplinary approach is one of the mainstays of this editorial project and all of the above mentioned topics are developed taking into consideration the economic, legal and urban planning aspects.&nbsp;<em>Aestimum</em>&nbsp;is biannual Journal and publishes articles both in Italian and English. Articles submitted are subjected to a double blind peer review process.</p> </div> “Value portfolio”, value creation and multifunctionality: the case study of an Italian wine agritourism farm 2020-07-03T17:04:54+00:00 Brunella Arru Roberto Furesi Fabio A. Madau Pietro Pulina <p>Recent developments in the food market show a reemergence of short supply chain (SFSC) mechanisms that allow producers to directly sell to final consumers. Multifunctional farms are able to internalize some public value and transfer this value in their food produced as to increase income. As such, agritourism can be considered a pure form of SFSC in creating this added value. Using a case study of an Italian farm that produces both typical and fine wines, we aimed to analyze how agritourism creates added value. The SFSC and other opportunities were compared. From a multifunctional perspective, our other purpose was to identify the main drivers able to generate the “value portfolio” for the agritourist farmer. The results suggest that wide margins for creating value exist for on-farm distribution and that many aspects contribute to building the farmer’s “value portfolio”.</p> 2020-02-24T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Brunella Arru, Roberto Furesi, Fabio A. Madau, Pietro Pulina Evaluating the flood damage on dairy farms: a methodological proposal 2020-07-03T17:04:49+00:00 Anna Gaviglio Rosalia Filippini Daniela Molinari Maria Elena Marescotti Eugenio Demartini <p>The debate on climate change arose several concerns on the impacts of floods on agriculture and, consequently, on food security. At the same time, the European Floods Directive asks Members States to implement suitable measures to mitigate flood damage on economic activities, including farms. Still, while several analyses were developed to estimate potential flood damages on crops, a gap exists for livestock productions. The purpose of this study is to develop a conceptual model for the assessment of flood economic damages on dairy farms. Results propose a static and a dynamic model of farms recovery actions to re-establish the farming activity, which takes into account all farm components, as well as their interaction. Facing the destruction caused by floods, a first reaction of farmers could be closing the activity, with repercussion on this well-being as well as on farm workers’, and on the economy of rural areas. From this perspective, this study wants to provide a first methodological pathway to support farmers in restoring their activity.</p> 2020-02-24T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Anna Gaviglio, Rosalia Filippini, Daniela Molinari, Maria Elena Marescotti, Eugenio Demartini Tutelare il paesaggio agrario periurbano attraverso la multifunzionalità. Costruzione e valutazione di una proposta di piano di conservazione e valorizzazione in area milanese 2020-07-03T17:04:45+00:00 Andrea L’Erario <p>The peri-urban agricultural landscape has a potential social value linked to the use of agricultural areas, as well as an agricultural-productive value. Multifunctionality has become fundamental in the sustainable management of urban and peri-urban agricultural areas. The paper describes the application of a decision-making support tool, based on a multi-methodological approach, for concerted management policies (Public bodies/farmers) in peri-urban agricultural areas. Three principles guide the proposal: Conservation of the historical landscape as heritage; Valorization of the social potentials of the landscape in the peri-urban context; Sustainable management, with a public-private partnership perspective.</p> 2020-02-24T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Andrea L’Erario Land rent values determinants: a Hedonic Pricing approach at local scale 2020-07-03T17:04:39+00:00 Chiara Mazzocchi Anna Borghi Federica Monaco Anna Gaviglio Rosalia Filippini Eugenio Demartini Guido Sali <p>Farmland values are driven by a complex set of factors. Starting from the idea that land rent values may reflect several characteristics both internal and external to agricultural sector, the paper has implemented a hedonic model based on land rent values in the metropolitan area of Milan, Northern Italy, assessing the influence of climate, soil, territorial and farm variables on a sample of farms. The model is based on data at rent contract level, matched with data at farm and municipal scale retrieved from different sources. Results confirm that land rent prices are affected by some climate variables, along with territorial and farm characteristics.</p> 2020-02-24T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Chiara Mazzocchi, Anna Borghi, Federica Monaco, Anna Gaviglio, Rosalia Filippini, Eugenio Demartini, Guido Sali Rassegna giurisprudenziale 2020-07-03T17:04:37+00:00 Nicola Lucifero <p>AAVV</p> 2020-02-24T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Nicola Lucifero
