This paper refers to the Prin (Research Programs of National Interest) "Recycle Italy - New life cycles for architecture and infrastructure of cities and landscape", carried out by 13 Italian universities, in which the contribution of the Unit of the Polytechnic of Bari focuses on the theme of recycling applied to the planning strategies and design of the built environment, with particular attention to the issue of mining landscapes. The quarries have a great economic and strategic value in Puglia region even though today they fall into the category of Drosscapes, places of abandonment and rejection, due to poorly innovative extraction processes of ornamental and building stone. The theme of Recycling landscapes of quarries states a new value system that extends the concept of environmental sustainability by the mere recovery of abandoned quarries to the definition of sustainable criteria regarding the whole process of management and technological mining activity, from the opening of the quarries, to the techniques of cultivation, to its recycling to new public functions. The working hypothesis is to experiment approaches, techniques and technologies of recycling mining landscapes of Puglia within a cross-scaling strategy: - Macroscale, the mining drosscapes, seen in their phenomenological dimension throughout the whole Puglia region; - Mesoscale: study of the areas that the Regional Plan of mining Activities identifies as particularly affected by mining, in which each intervention should be aimed at mining recovery of the area in terms of landscape and environment; - Microscale (extractive basins in Apricena and Cutrofiano): case studies analyzed in detail for technical, material and landscape specificity, which represent the extremes between which you can place any other extractive landscape Puglia. The paper investigates how the "waste", traces of a production process, may establish new sustainable cycles of life for the mining materials in a chain that aims to recycle drosscapes in a virtuous way.
