Abstract

‘Anina, Mine of Ideas’(En) / ‘Mina de idei Anina’ (Ro) is the name given to the series of events organised by Alba Verde Association starting from May 2014 and meant to enable the local identity rekindling and the economic, social and cultural regeneration of the post‐industrial town of Anina (Romania) through its community direct involvement. The main goal of the project, with an international and interdisciplinary participation, is that to reconnect from an economic, social and cultural perspective an isolated area to the regional and national territory through a series of actions meant for the local architectural heritage enhancement. The project seeks the capitalization of the industrial heritage as tangible connection element between the actual postindustrial community and the past, as basis for the adoption of an “ethical” intervention attitude towards the existing built environment; the provision of the key elements necessary to a local level post‐industrial regeneration strategy; the assumption of a specific methodology for the industrial heritage understanding and approach by architecture students, but also by local authorities, and the knowledge transfer between the didactic‐academic sector and the decision and professional one, regarding sustainable post‐industrial regeneration. Considered as one of the main cultural initiative in Romania focused on the issue of the post-industrial reality, the project was selected to be presented in the volume dedicated to the industrial archaeology by “Arhitectura” magazine. Therefore, the article presents the different phases of the cultural project, especially those concentrated on the photographic survey and recording of Anina industrial landscape occurred during 2014 - 2016, and stressing the many different methods used by the specialists involved in the project. Furthermore, the article illustrates the manner in which Anina industrial landscape is approached and interpreted from a patrimonial perspective in all its tangible manifestations, presenting its peculiarities and main features as possible references for the local / national stakeholders in the territorial revitalization strategies to come.
