Students of "Fray Luis de Granada" High School of Granada participates in a seminar about the landscape archaeology.

The video presents the archaeoloigcal excavation of the islamic site at Pizzo Monaco (Custonaci, Trapani). The structure is partially preserved in elevation, of considerable size (2,500 sq m), and with a total of about 55 cells collapsed.

The rehabilitation of the traditional irrigation system of Barjas (Granada, Spain).

Cultural landscapes, with their agricultural ecosystems, are the place where the biodiversity of wild plants has been preserved and biodiversity of cultivates plants was generated. The current richness of fruit trees varieties is the result of a millennial process of introduction and domestication occurred in different historical periods and, therefore, closely linked to the people who come through Sicily.


Documentaries are a great way to record project activities, creating a historical record of an event. They gave us the possibility to combine several media, such as images, audio, text, maps, charts, interviews, etc, in a short and pleasant format that easily attracts user attention, conveying the message.


Prof. Carlo Citter, Univeristy of Siena, held a seminar about innovative research on spatial analysis and predictivity applied to historical landscape analysis, with case studies on Colli Euganei.

Seminars and workshops

Seminars and workshops are an essential part of the consortium approach to scientific research. We use them to involve professionist, private companies, organizations, local and regional policy makers over agriculture, territorial planning, rural development and cultural heritage, sharing differente working techniques and specific methodologies. The practical side of these activities let us embrace very different fields, from advanced IT tecniques to tradtional skills and know-how, adding often an important socioeconomic value.


This exhibit was held in the town square of Cáñar, organised by the MEMOLA project in collaboration with the Biodiversity Foundation of the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environment. The themes were the traditional activities, mountainous landscapes and the recovery of the traditional irrigation systems of Barjas. View the gallery


Exhibitions are an important tool of comunication and dissemination of the scientific studies carried out within the framework of the MEMOLA project. They allows us to connect with local communities, scientists and people interested in the topic to let them know different aspects of cultural landscapes.

At the same time they are also a tool for citizens engagement, since we involve local communities in the provision of material and in some case also in organisation and design decision-making.



Lanteira is a village in the north of the Sierra Nevada belonging to the Marquesado del Zenete. The municipal area extends from the peaks of the mountains to the plains of the plateau. The urban nucleus is located at the foot of the mountain, next to intensive irrigated area that, through a complex system of canals, takes advantage of the waters of the thaw.
