Abstract

Immediately after the end of the I world war Italian government emanated laws and defined procedures to consent civil inhabitants of the land devastated from the battle and the Austrian and German troops invasion to return to their towns and villages and to start the reconstruction. This is a story, only partially reconstructed and analysed, that is extremely interesting considering that a very vast territory (from Trentino Alto Adige, to Friuli Venezia Giulia and Veneto regions) has been ‘redesigned starting’ from the modern principles of urbanism, but trying to preserve the ‘tradition’ and the architectural and urban specificity, too. Through the analysis of few case-history (as the one of the village of Quero near Belluno, or the villages along the Piave river in Treviso province) it is possible to verify this tension between the new planning culture and the will to preserve the historical tradition, represented by the church and the town hall, at most. The analysis will be conducted through archival documents, starting from previous studies conducted on the reconstruction of the ecclesiastical heritage.
