The Resilience Paths are then an opportunity to reactivate the "inner territories", reactivating (economic, social, cultural) relationships to bring back active population that can "maintain" the territory intended as a source of life. And this should be the strength of a resilient and antifragile territory.

Abstract

This volume comes to light after we have experienced – and we are still experiencing - a dramatic global health emergency due to Covid-19 in recent months. An experience that must finally make us understand that we cannot continue to think of "always remaining healthy in a sick world" (Pope Francis, 2020). From the experience of recent months, we are presented with an opportunity that we cannot ignore to change many things in the globalized society in which we live. The return to the "control" of territory seems opportune, feasible and more necessary than ever. The combination of infrastructures, mobility models and the territory is at the center of the contributions of this volume, edited by Chiara Ravagnan and Chiara Amato. The Resilience Paths therefore want to indicate a road, an (inter) disciplinary path to be faced and followed with determination. The research, coordinated by Chiara Ravagnan, encourages us to put in place a virtuous circle, described in the forth part of the book. Starting from the concepts of resilience and antifragility, which must form the basis for the construction of integrated policies and strategies aimed at rediscovering the immense heritage of fragile territories, it will be fundamental to guarantee the Right to Accessibility. On the one hand, this accessibility must be related to an integrated reinterpretation of the network of secondary railways, underused or abandoned; on the other hand, it must rely on the diffusion of digital networks. In the midst of the technological era, the opportunities offered even to small towns and historic villages are immense and cannot be ignored. The Resilience Paths are then an opportunity to reactivate the "inner territories", reactivating (economic, social, cultural) relationships to bring back active population that can "maintain" the territory intended as a source of life. And this should be the strength of a resilient and antifragile territory.
