January 2018: Sustainable Models of Heritage Conservation and Revitalization: A Proposal for the Historic Villages of Vuno and Qeparo, Albania

Lupe

This report, conducted by the 2016/17 class of Urban Management in cooperation with the GIZ - Gesellschaft für Internationale  Zusammenarbeit, examines strategies of sustainable heritage conservation for the Albanian villages of Vuno and Qeparo.

It is supposed to stimulate and contribute to an emerging discussion in Albania regarding the development of creative, sustainable models for conserving the country’s rich cultural heritage and revitalizing village communities. The intention is twofold. First, by elaborating on general principles of conservation in combination with a broad collection of concrete and successful international case-studies, the aim is to inspire regional stakeholders to learn from elsewhere as they work to define local solutions. Second, a proposal for the historic villages of Vuno and Qeparo - a Village Conservation Model based on the development of a Conservation Lab and dispersed Village Hotel - will be a constructive start to the preservation of the villages of Albania’s southern coastal region.
