The contemporary globalised world model is gradually causing the rural regions to shrink and diminish their power to compete with big cities. One of these regions is the Solovetsky archipelago in the White Sea in Russia where local villages are shrinking and young people are moving to bigger cities either to study or to find work. However, the archipelago is still visited by tens of thousands of people who come here to admire its diversified natural and cultural heritage. The aim of this thesis was to determine how the archipelago can be sustainably revitalised by landscaping and architectural interventions. The goal was to build up a strategic redevelopment plan that has the magnitude to reverse the on-going degradation of the local quality of life and move it towards a positive state of vitality. We found out that in order to revitalise the archipelago it was essential to carry out strategically determined interventions in specific areas of the archipelago that integrate a diversified inventory of details which can simultaneously entertain miscellaneous user groups. The analysis, and the result of the thesis are compatible to be used as guidance to architects, landscape designers, municipalities and small businesses that are seeking for revitalisation strategies for analogous rural areas. These books are a platform of heterogeneity, which find their common field in the theory of weakness, as imperfect and manifold way of knowledge. The aim is to experience an alternative method for contemporary spaces, able to regenerate the sta bilized ideas of design. They are more experimental and vital texts/tests than verification procedures: this attitude brings them away from a strictly educational approach. They can be read according to two levels of meaning: in their specific contexts and as open platforms for contemporary researches. Almost all of them are focused on processual values and on project transdisciplinary, in order to promote a cognitive space before a real one. I provided the students with fews thematic lines (a sense of short-circuit, trial, process of meaning), which were underlining an interpretation of knowledge in a horizontal sense, as Gilles Deleuze had defined. These topics have been independently developed by the candidates, so that they can be considered as authors of a new idea. I instructed this learning and researching method, because I belive that the secret of an effective education in to coinvince each student to be able to build his own vision of the world, without stereotyped positions. I am finalising the object of education in the freedom of intelligence, and not in the rules of disciplines, by broading the students' needs and points of view. To cross the world in new expanded geographical horizons.
