Abstract

In the Thirties summer holiday camps, the so called "colonie climatiche di soggiorno", were built in the Abruzzo region, such as colonies "Rosa Maltoni Mussolini" in Giulianova and "Stella Maris" in Montesilvano , or the mountain hostel "IX May" in L'Aquila. These buildings represent a heritage of architecture of Modern Movement in Italy and are worthy to be preserved. However the requirement of conserving them has to be judged considering the specificity of use to which they were originally intended: the colonies were in fact built in marginal areas of cities and this singular condition of peripheral spaces makes difficult the defining of effective strategies in order to achieve a re-use compatible with actions of a necessary conservation.
