Project Summary

Waterpower – Renewal Strategy for the Mulini Valley

The project uses water as the central theme with the preservation of a number of historic buildings and maintaining aesthetic balance between existing and new structures.

Set in the magnificent context of the steep valley of the River Canneto rising between Amalfi and Scala, this project aims to recover a landscape and a system of pre-industrial water mills currently in danger of collapse beyond repair.
