On rooting landscape in culture
The paper will focus mainly on the question concerning the possibility of a cultural reading of landscape. A starting point for me will be the historical evolution of the notion of landscape, a new interpretation of which makes it possible to approach it as “cultural landscape.” Showing the possibilities of moving from an aesthetic landscape to a topographic experience, and referring to both aesthetics and humanistic geography, I will illustrate the changes in the very understanding of landscape, the cultural dimension of which has long been examined in reflections on culture. Such an approach to landscape seems to me key to understanding the place of individuals today in the cultural space, in which an examination of the past finds its counterweight in the horizon of the future.
