Abstract

The essay suggests an interpretation on the topic of relationship between landscape and places of extraction, through the declination of re-cycling as an approach at different scales, to define strategies and metodological activities, which allow to update and innovate the principles upon which is based the relationship between exploitation, transformation and disposal of the quarries. The case of Apulia represents a significant field, considering at least for two issues: the role assumed by the activity of stone extraction in the regional economy, although nowdays is not implemented by activities of transformation of the matter in loco; also for the dimensional relevance of the landscapes of quarries, mainly connected to private interests, and for the activities, and resulting environmental implications (1).
