The lecture Back to river would like to explore the relationship between cities and rivers, considering changes produced by cities on fluvial landscapes. The rivers always characterized the morphology of urban settlements, representing a productive resource, up to the time of anthropic transformations produced on them caused the marginality of these landscapes and transformed rivers in dangers for mankind and environment. Back to river arises from the consciousness of fluvial spaces as an essential resource we have to preserve and value.
