Contemporary landscape is a complex ‘text’, packed with interfering elements which appear as overlapping areas of land with multiple sections capable of revealing sequences of the periods that have affected it. Tor Bella Monaca is an interesting field of study because it lies in a varied and heterogeneous region, in which four different types of inhabited landscape meet: agricultural, natural, infrastructural and urban, which make it an emblematic case that opens up new conceptual horizons for design. Scenarios emerge from these which are associated with: urban ‘regeneration’ processes, which modernise buildings and landscapes again; the ‘renovation’ of abandoned spaces, the reuse of infrastructural landscapes; and finally the recycling of resources which are still usable. The integration of four landscapes allows us to grasp a new dynamic and relational vision of space, with a view to the recovery and conscious transformation of our urban heritage.
