Digital Revolution in Apulia: an ambitious integrated project to optimise Environment, Agriculture and Regional Services

The main objective of the project ‘Puglia Digitale – Operational Plan Ecosystem Agricolture Territory and Environment’ is to strengthen and evolve the system of data and services of the infrastructures of the territory. In order to achieve this goal, however, a multiplicity of sub-interventions or sub-projects are required, such as the experimentation of new technologies for better knowledge of the territory.

Through these technologies, one can also:

  • analyse how the territory and the dynamics within it are evolving and quickly predict events or interventions by analysing past data,
  • update maps, making them always up-to-date,
  • update data in archives from paper to digital,
  • create new digital systems and services for citizens, authorities, the region and other actors to better monitor requests and interventions.

The implementing company of this project is InnovaPuglia. However, intervening at the regional level, they received support both from the region itself and from various sectoral and transversal bodies. Among these, a particularly fundamental role is played by the RTD (Responsible for Digital Transition).

The project implementation is currently still ongoing. Most of the funds for project implementation come from the European Commission’s 2014-2019 Cohesion and Development Fund, which is the institution in charge of such funding.

Clip of Cohesion #66 – In 2021, the programming of European cohesion funds across the continent began. It is now 2024: what is its state of progress?

In this episode of the UnicaRadio Podcast, some points of the ‘Antica Kroton’ project are presented. The project is part of the 2014-2020 Action and Cohesion Plan (CAP), a fund created in 2011 to speed up the arrival of European funds, and also to monitor the effectiveness of interventions.

The main aim of the project, as its name suggests, is to enhance the areas involved, in particular: the Urban Archaeological Area, for the recovery of the excavations in the city centre; the Stadium Area – Pignera Park, with the intention of musealising the entire park area; and the redevelopment of the ‘Ex Ariston’ area.

These areas, considered to be an ‘urban void’, have not been touched by the construction because there have been archaeological discoveries. The intervention, targeted only at the areas owned by the municipality, aims to exploit this urban void and restore beauty to the entire ancient area of the city of Crotone.
