Topographic survey

Survey performed in 2007 by archaeologist topographer Giorgio Nogara on behalf of the cultural heritage office. As can be seen from the plan, Prada has more than 40 remains of buildings between houses and stables. A dozen of these buildings still retain a good wall texture thanks to the refined construction technique used, which provided for the use of discrete and well-worked stones positioned in the corners and in the most sensitive places of the buildings, as well as the use of lime mortar as a binder. Among these houses is also the 13.2, the building that currently has more substance and for this reason the conservative restoration with the reconstruction of the missing parts is planned within the Prada valorisation project. Another peculiarity of Prada is the layout of the houses, grouped in blocks (like terraced houses). It should also be noted that the village is located in a basin with a west / southwest exposure between the Dragonato torrent and the torrent Guasta, very sheltered from the north wind.

Forest control with helicopters

The smaller trees will be attached to the helicopter's hook to be transported to Serta (the forest's deposit center); the bigger ones will be attached to the helicopter's hook and unmounted (cut by the worker on the plant) directly mid-height and transported to the forest's deposit center.
