VVITA - Modernizing Learning and Teaching for Architecture
Authors’ CommentVVITA is an Erasmus+ project with transnational cooperation between UAUIM, UNICT and NTNU, which raises question of European higher education by improving and diversifying the participating universities curriculum on approaches to rural built heritage environment, rural landscape and traditional construction systems. The project has a social inclusion strategy in selected local rural settlements (Lofoten-NO, Filicudi-IT, Sfiștofca-RO) with social-civic-interethnic-intercultural dimension on disadvantaged and remote architectural heritage through activity of three Intensive Programmes. These are “teaching laboratories”, which lead to a sustainable and inclusive development of strategies to vitalize heritage villages.
