The Castle of Agliè (Turin), together with wide neighboring agricultural areas – in the past centuries organized in a rational and well-defined way – definitely constitute a “cultural landscape”, whose unitary conception and cultural representativeness has been loosening progressively, with the fragmentation of the territorial components. Looking for solutions to restore the Agliè Castle Estates in their original deep relational ties with the Castle, the “Urban Restoration and Enhancement Atelier B” (2014-15) carried on hypothesis of restoration and enhancement; they offered coherent answers with the need that safeguarding cultural heritage should be integrated with the re-functionalization, producing resources able to support the owner, as well as the properties.
