An idea of landscape and Restoration, Retrieval and Regeneration of landscape
We study the morphogenesis of the landscape, its aesthetic identity and its signs structuring in the generative process due to some metabolism of nature and history. Continuous change explicit in the “dynamics of the elements” and the “perceptive dynamism”. If one understands that the personality of a landscape is not only due to its geomorphology, but also to the changes, both natural and man-made, incurred during the course of time, we understand that it is impossible to “re-in-staurare”, a past state, unlikely to “cum-serbare” the current state forever equal to itself. Instead, to “trans-mittere” the future, that is, over time, send out signs that physically characterize the deep and impalpable essence of a landscape. You could speak of a degraded landscape when the signs, spatial and cultural characters that distinguish it and make it unique and unrepeatable, has undergone profound and structural changes detrimental to the values of its personality, with no value in itself.
