In both the South Tyrolean and Alpine areas, the case of Brunico is emblematic as regards welfare strategies. From the seventies of the last century and up to today, far-sighted planning policies have contributed decisively to this. The physical and spatial translation of welfare policies and strategies are the numerous architectural and territorial actions that contribute to providing Brunico with an offer of services worthy of a large center.
The welfare theme seems to cross across all sectors of society. What is particularly surprising is not only the particular executive and formal quality of the various infrastructures and structures present (and planned) in the municipal area, but also and above all their concentration within such a limited perimeter.
Careful and minute planning, together with punctual actions on the territory and the adoption of the competition practice for the assignment of the assignments, all linked by a substantial communion of intent between citizenship, administration and designers, can lead also a mountain city to become competitive in terms of services to the community, strategies and structures for welfare.
A possible point of reference for those alpine realities that want to look to the future with a view to regeneration and modernity.
