Just Accepted


In response to the requests of our scientific community, Scienze del Territorio is glad to make articles available online soon after acceptance.

After peer-review and revision, the Just Accepted Manuscripts will be posted online prior to technical editing, formatting for publication, and author proofing.

This is a service we offer to the research community in order to expedite the dissemination of scientific information as soon as possible after acceptance.

Just Accepted Manuscripts will be given a header, an article ID, a Digital Object Identifier (DOI), and will show an “Accepted Manuscript” watermark across each page.

Finally the Just Accepted Manuscripts will be removed from the website, the article will be assigned to a forthcoming issue and published both online and in hard copy. The DOI will always remain the same, to make sure that all citations will correctly link to the final paper.

Abstract. This dialogue with Luca Mercalli, researcher and science communicator of environmental issues, focuses on the link between climate change and migration, with a particular reference to what is currently happening here and there in Italian mountains. It is a sort of ‘upwelling’ towards mountain areas whose protagonists (new mountaineers) try to fulfil not only an economic but also a life project. Mercalli explains the reasons of this movement towards the mountains which, in the next future, will become an increasingly central issue in territorial policies, telling his personal experience and choice to live in the upper Susa valley, in the borough of Vazon (Oulx). A complex challenge, this, between struggles and the great beauty expressed in that place. Attention and regard to the place accompany his project both in re-functionalizing and in building technique choices. A sort of ship’s log that helps reflect on the urgent programmes and policies for the re-activation of mountain territories.

Keywords: climate change; migration; mountains; territorial policies; boroughs.
