Abstract: The landscape is the result of a series of connected processes, slow or sudden, which create the shape and appearance we know today. What we observe is only one of its many appearances and each of them has a story to tell. There are different types of landscape (natural, anthropic, “built” or “hybrid”) where human being and nature are architects of its appearance, in a competition in which human being adapts to nature, in a sort of harmonious and balanced coexistence, or even tries to “overcome” it; in the latter case, the nature, often and willingly, wins the challenge, but with serious consequences for human being.
