Focus on landscape. Comparison of international experience
Open lectures. Milan 2014
Landscape is becoming ever more a key topic in the contemporary world. Not only because the European Landscape Convention signed over ten years ago in Florence triggered a series of protection and valorisation norms in our country, on behalf of the public bodies but also because it obliged universities and professional associations to programme new figures and revise the planning culture. Yet the very culture of a country which boasts an envied density of cultural assets on its territory as well as a long history of norms for their protection, turns out to be paralysed, frozen before the challenge of modernity, the proposal of development and the relative infrastructurisation of the territory, which the current globalisation processes are imposing. The initiative includes a series of meetings with some landscapists, lecturers from the Masters in Landscape Architecture UPC-ACMA and interpreters of the main international experiences, which are open to the public. These meetings will be a moment of exchange and comparison on themes which are becoming increasingly topical, not merely for technicians and professionals in the sector but also for stimulating a widespread awareness in the people who must necessarily share the collective landscape assets.
