Starting from the middle of the twentieth century, the issue of what we call “the natural” and “the artificial” in the Mediterranean context has been controversial. There is no place in our environment that has not been influenced by the human species, either actively or passively.
The anthropic transformations probably began with the earliest Neolithic settlements: thus, our landscapes are the result of a historical process, and their ecological and cultural values derive precisely from this manipulation of space.
However, the changes introduced by the human species have not always produced beautiful environments, nor have they always been ecologically efficient. Sometimes accelerating the transformation process has led to critical situations, which in turn have produced and are still producing hardly harmonious landscapes with little or no balance.
The conference is within the Workshop “Ecological networks. Planning through bio-diversity in the urban environment” and is part of “Il punto sul Paesaggio“, a series of meetings open to the public with some landscapers, teachers, students of the Master in Landscape Architecture UPC-ACMA based in Milan, interpreters of the main international experiences: the moment of exchange and discussion of current issues more and more, not only for technicians and professionals but also for the growth of a widespread awareness in society that necessarily share the common heritage of the landscape.
The lecture is open to the public and free entrance, previous confirmation to be sent by mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and will be broadcast live streaming on www.paesaggio.it/webtv.
Participants to the initiative will also receive a certificate which can be used to require professional formative credits to the belonging professional order.
