Abstract

The concept of "landscape", within its semantic complexity between nature and artifice, leads to an in depth and non-conventional reflection for the urban and territorial contemporary project. All at once, the landscape is heritage, eco-system complexity, site-specificity of the urban realm. The breadth of this definition is related to the interdisciplinarity of the landscape project and its capability to works at different scales. It leads to a socio-cultural reading of the most contradictory phenomena of the urban transformation. Moreover, it defines the tools of a potential structure, and outlines morphologies aiming to produce a new habitable space in urban areas. By the same token, the concept of "periphery" itself may appears sterile, outdated and devoid of any transformative future vision, if not related to the framework of the "new urban question" promoting cultural and collective values. Instead, the" peri-urban" territory draws the way for an ecological vision as a palimpsest of historical and cultural traces. This dialectic with the territory-concived as landscape project- triggers a prospective reactivation of structural and spatial relationships which are able to think at the current fragmented condition in terms of network flows, fluid and vibrant spaces, and connective tissue of resources for a new "urban quality". This polyvalent meaning is similar to the creative process of the landscape photography which conceptually nullifies the figure-background dyad. In this respect, it revaluates priorities and autonomies of possible interpretations basing on a overall view.
