Riassunto: This project aims to enhance the results of the research done so far on the genetic recovery of indigenous breeds, the environmental and ecological value of open spaces (pastures), local anthropological-cultural aspects, the characterisation of ecosystem facilities and the definition of public quality systems. It will channeling all of the above into the creation of an addedeconomic value, which the farmers need to be able to manage so as to benefit the economic sustainability and industry of their own animal production. It is thus possible, in a new and integrated manner, to carry out an endogenous development of marginal mountainous areas. The immediately applicable results refer to ovine production of indigenous breeds and will affect: -The characterisation of meat and milk in order to highlight their nutraceutical virtues linked to the use of pastures - The drawing of technical policies for production which code this relationship - The selection and realization of innovative (or retro-innovative) ovine products, in particular for animals at the end of their reproductive life - The recovery and management of the first transformation (and sale) of wool for the creation of an added industrial value in a view of circular economy - The application of participatory instruments of economic enhancement of ecosystem services offered by farms in the geographical areas of reference - The evaluation of possible public quality control systems for the enhancement of ovine production.
