The residential school imagined by Astra Zarina in Civita di Bagnoregio, in the mid seventies, has been a collective learning laboratory that, for more than 30 years, led to a massive knowledge production on the territorial fragility of Civita and, at the same time, to identify unprecedented planning visions. Most of all, it contributed to a revitalisation of a village that was on the brim of social atrophy. In those years Civita, in fact, was a rural village that had been threateningly abandoned because of the industrialisation processes and the consequent abandonment of countryside, primary source for the survival of its community. The political and sociological imagination of Astra and the active involvement of the dwellers who had not left the town, progressively, brought Civita into a new life cycle.
