ARS Progetti, Ambiente Risorse e Sviluppo (Environment, Resources and Development) is a consulting firm working all over the world and it is also a think- tank elaborating themes of human development. Established in 1992, as a result from the evolution of previous forms of association, ARS Progetti inherited a professional tradition dating back to the beginning of the 70.s, which considered people’s cultural specificity as an asset for development. Since then culture has always remained the no-escape subject of their approach to development. ARS Progetti applies a system approach to its projects, where the “system” includes culture, nature and socio-economic organisation. They consider themselves as an open laboratory, where innovative ideas are identified, translated in action tools and put in practice. The raw material, i.e. the ideas, are originated within the international scientific community they belong to, while the process engineering is their own, based on the know-how accumulated in 30 years of international experience. CLIENTS: Their clients have been so far mainly public institutions and international development organisations.
