Established in the 1930s with the redesign of an entire area for coal mining purposes, Carbonia has developed a plan for the protection, conservation and reuse of its built heritage in the last decade, for which it received the 2011 award for landscape from the Council of Europe. The programme commenced with the change in the meaning of mining buildings to create a cultural and research centre to stand alongside ‘The Italian Centre for Coal Mining Culture’. The protection and development of the landscape was entrusted to the ‘Charter for architectural and urban quality’ contained in the Urban Plan, which constituted the basis for the rules governing identity, design and modification. After the restoration of the public spaces and the central specialist buildings, the current objective is the ‘widespread restoration’ of the residential fabric in a dialectic between conservation and modification.
