The European Parliament and the Foundation of the International Charlemagne Prize of Aachen have invited young people from all the EU Member States to participate in a competition on EU development, integration and European identity issues. At the final event, Slovenia was represented by the national winner Miha Markelj with the assignment Architectural research - basis for the restoration of 800 years old connections.
Below you will find a short abstract. For more information please contact btps@slovenia.info.

At the beginning of the 13th century the Freising colonization established a connection between two alpine valleys and their inhabitants. However, due to different geographical, social and political implications this connection and correlation between the two valleys slowly began to fade to the point when the final link between the areas went obscure.

An Architectural research that carried out a survey of architectural heritage in the villages of Selška valley, among some intriguing architectural finds, indirectly highlighted the aspect of the 800 year old connection and its importance in the middle ages. By doing so, it created a basis for a possible restoration of the bond in modern times.

The project whose main purpose is to restore the link between the Pustartal valley (Alta Pusteria) in Italy and Selška valley in Slovenia, focuses on various activities trough witch it tries to restore the connection between the two communities and by doing so create avernes of cultural and social concepts that can be gained from the connection. Common elements that can generate activities between the valleys are concentrated in three areas: culture, tourism and education. Apart from this three arias interdisciplinary and multiplication factors are taken into account thus widening the three mane areas also to the filed of sports, regional planning and rural architecture.

In general, the Project is strengthening a common identity within the European Union through the re-establishment of links between the Pustertal and Selška valley (municipality of Innichen/San Candido and Železniki), and will provide an exchange of various views and knowledge’s through a set of multiple activities to the local inhabitants.

In order for the connection to succeed it must be oriented in to the future. The project also focuses on activities in 2012 that are going to present an upgrade of the primary activities carried out in 2010/11. 

It must also be noted that the methodological design for the project allows the application of it also to other related areas with a similar background.
