Конкурс ставит целью вдохнуть новую жизнь в окрестности Салерно, привлечь внимание к живописным пейзажам сельской местности и культурным традициям региона. Участникам необходимо представить идеи по преображению неиспользуемых сегодня сарайчиков под названием «джацци», которые раньше служили ночлегом для пасущихся стад животных, и прилегающих к ним территорий. Здесь должны появиться пешеходные маршруты, а также места для остановок и отдыха.
The Jazzi Cultural Association is promoting this competition in order to discover ideas for the valorisation and narration of the environmental, material and intangible heritage of the Licusati (Camerota) area, located west of Mount Bulgheria and within the Cilento National Park and the Vallo di Diano (Salerno, Italy). It aims to encourage a new way of experiencing nature, through living it as a place for life and relationships, and creating a physical and virtual space that uses hospitality to initiate a strategy for development.
The “stazzi” or “jazzi” (n. sing. jazzo, from the Latin iacere, to lie) were the temporary resting places that sheltered grazing animals, and were points that connected villages, sheep tracks and mountain pastures. They are buildings with a rectangular layout, dry stone walls and a sloping roof, usually with one pitch. Outside, a low stone wall forms an enclosure where herds can stay. These jazzi, which are unused or dilapidated today, can be found over a large area on Mount Bulgheria, and are central to a widespread network of paths.
Located just a few kilometres from one of the most evocative coasts of the Mediterranean, Mount Bulgheria descends towards the village of Licusati. Access to the top of the mountain and to the jazzi begins from two places in particular: the Church of the Annunziata and the Chapel of Sant’Antonio.
A path leading to the summit (1225 m) starts from behind the Church of the Annunziata, and passes by the Tozzo del Finocchio towards Cropana, Valli Cupi and Chiano, climbing back along the crest of the Chiaia Grande.
The mountain is also accessible via the path of the thousand-year-old olive trees, which begins at the Chapel of Sant’Antonio and travels upwards towards the Murici jazzo, then heading towards the Lequa jazzo. These trails pass slowly through thousand-year-old olive groves at the foot of the mountain, opening up to panoramic views over the Gulf of Policastro and towards Palinuro (for further details, please consult the Attachments). The competition for ideas is specifically interested in this area.
The wider territorial context includes the entire Mount Bulgheria and adjacent areas: the village of Bosco to the northeast; the village of Scario to the east; the protected marine area of Costa degli Infreschi e della Masseta and the marine zone of the Municipality of Camerota to the south; the Natural Arch and Palinuro to the southwest; the gorge of the Mingardo River to the west; the uninhabited medieval village of San Severino di Centola to the northwest. The environment and landscape of this entire area is protected by both the Cilento and Vallo di Diano National Park Authority and the Superintendency for Cultural and Environmental Heritage of Salerno and Avellino.
Four jazzi have been chosen for this competition: Jazzo Murici; Jazzo della Cropana; Jazzo di Valli Cupi; Jazzo del pastore a Chiano.
