Natural disasters affect ever-expanding parts of our planet, sometimes hitting areas showing clear signs of long-lasting socio-economic decline. This is the case of the inland areas of the Umbria-Marche Apennines, severely damaged by the earthquake of 24 August 2016 and the following ones. The research New development paths for the Marche Apennines, carried out by the four universities of Marche (Camerino, Macerata, Urbino, Marche Polytechnic) in partnership with the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia and promoted by the Legislative Assembly of Regione Marche, builds on the observation that no form of post-earthquake regeneration of the Marche mountain area is possible without a process aimed at defining new development paths strongly anchored to local identities, courageously aimed at the construction of new social and economic dynamics, capable of interpreting the entrepreneurial capacities of local communities by promoting an increase in the attractiveness of places and therefore the resistance of territorial defence.
