The paper focuses on the potentiality of geosites valorisation in supporting a sustainable rural development strategy. An inner area in Southern Italy with a valuable naturalistic and geological, heritage is considered. The area is analysed under demographic, economic, environmental, agricultural and tourism profiles to bring out limits and strengths that a strategy of geological valorisation can meet. Results highlighted the fragility of the Mountain -in terms of depopulation, ageing, unemployment and low firm density, that has not been affected by a proper tourism development. The valorisation of geosites can achieve its potential if all components of local heritage are reinforced and built around common peculiarities.

Abstract

The paper focuses on the potentiality of geosites valorisation in supporting a sustainable rural development strategy. An inner area in Southern Italy with a valuable naturalistic and geological, heritage is considered. The area is analysed under demographic, economic, environmental, agricultural and tourism profiles to bring out limits and strengths that a strategy of geological valorisation can meet. Results highlighted the fragility of the Mountain -in terms of depopulation, ageing, unemployment and low firm density, that has not been affected by a proper tourism development. The valorisation of geosites can achieve its potential if all components of local heritage are reinforced and built around common peculiarities.
