The architectural and environmental restoration plan is to perform structural, plant and finishing actions on country building of town property located in Gubbio, loc. Cipolleto-Olmotondo I.
Through the activation of a second functional stage, which will be begun during the works expected on the project, will be also completed the design of the outside spaces of the country building; they will be a functional connection with some accommodation of the building, and will be used for activities of Farmers’ Market, according to the design guidelines, in concert with the Agricultural Department of the Town and consistent with the resources provided.
Specifically, the Farmers’ Market are farmer markets managed most of all by little producers, where there is a direct relationship between producer and consumer; conviviality spaces, where it’s possible to talk, to taste some typical products, where to do the shopping isn’t only a “functional” and alienating action, but has regained pleasure and sociability.
In this building and in the outdoor spaces will be organized the sale of food products, on a local scale, like oil, flour, honey, cheese, wine, etc.; the idea is also to avoid long distance transport and to rediscover the relationship with the own land.
Inside the building, on the ground floor, one of the rooms will be intended to kitchen area, where there is the preparation of traditional local products like “Cake Al Testo” “Brustengho” etc.; on the first floor instead, where the rooms will be exhibition halls, will be realized the museum of rural culture; an exhibition where it will be possible to retrace, through the revealing exemplification of the organization, the representation of a rural world not too far away, where the predominant activity of the country of Gubbio was to take advantage of the soil.
The exhibition includes objects of daily use and a part of the rooms will be furnished with furniture and tools of the time, thus, it will be possible to rebuild a typical farmhouse.
