Abbandoni – Treviso (Italy)


International Landscape Study Days
The theme of abandonment of working and living places – from rural to mountain communities, minimal living spaces to large industrial complexes – has long been at the centre of the debate on the future of our planet and has given rise to a flourish of projects which, even as regards the landscape, has generated new methods and attitudes.
Current forms of abandonment need further study and the landscape and garden culture can approach this with a mindset and the means that consider this condition a value in itself and an opportunity for growth, seeing actions not as corrective measures but as an invaluable exercise in coexistence.
Abandoned places are therefore not purely a memory of the past or spaces waiting to be replaced by something new: the question is now how this state of limbo or lack of consideration can give rise to a “culture of abandonment”, which landscape research, together with the involvement of many others, can adopt and “cultivate” in a constructive and shared manner.

The 2022 Landscape Study Days will be held online on Zoom with a simultaneous translation in Italian and English. Participation in the Study Days is free.
