This CVM study investigates the WTP for a restoration project in Poggibonsi and Colle Val d’Elsa (Siena). An old cast-off rail could be bring back into use for recreational and environmental purposes. A double bounded dichotomous choice model allows to estimate use value for the restored area, while an open format is used for non-use value estimation. Results indicates a positive WTP for the project, and are a valid decision making support. In particular, results may suggest a price for an entrance fee, besides estimating residents willingness to contribute to the project, without visiting necessarily the area.
