[English abstract]. Thirty years after its official introduction in the international scientific debate, the sustainability paradigm seems to be now more crucial than ever in many fields of the present society, affecting almost every aspect of the public life; from the political debates to the development policies, from the production processes to the design culture. But, paradoxically, the worldwide critical reception of the term as a new “moral imperative” is likely to become its own constraint to its possible evolution. The pervading tendency to the guarantee of the quantitative data, the habitual fragmentation of the design processes in separate procedures that often risk to lose the control of the whole spatial quality, and the prevailing reduction of sustainability to the mere energy efficiency aspects, are probably the symptoms of a more general need to rediscuss the ontology itself of the term. Far from being a standardized and almost indeclinable set of abstract protocols of evaluation, a really “sustainable” design should be first of all a critical instrument, dialoguing with the local building cultures and traditions as well as with the environmental data and the technological devices. The present paper tries to discuss this issue starting from a peculiar point of view: the alpine territory, that is here considered as a “permanent laboratory” to test the relationships between the sustainability rationale and the local building cultures.
