The Vimercate landscape rests on two geographical constants which shape the natural and man-made structure of the area: the river and valley corridors which cross the area from North to South and the dense network of agricultural paths which form the framework of the agricultural plains running from East to West. These features become the support for a potential reticular public space consisting of routes, natural areas and services, a reconstituted margin between the city and the countryside, an agricultural space which becomes once again a builder of landscape quality. The construction of a new ‘geratio’ is therefore proposed, based on productive and ecological infrastructures in the landscape, thereby attributing a social role to agricultural areas as a multifunctional space of agricultural production, but which is also for leisure: a space where urban services, inhabited centres and natural and agricultural environments meet.
