Abstract

Landscape reveals the layering thousand years long history of the settlement. Canals around the city of Parma show patterns that express the survey tools and the relationship between the city and the territory. There aren’t many documents about the works carried out by the Romans as well as the Middle Age. The landscape itself testifies its far past in architecture and in the design of water management, which witnesses a carefully controlled execution of hydraulic works. Different patterns represent three historical phases, according with the survey’s concept and water management design. Canals show the reason behind patterns that identify the main phases of landscape transformation. Landscape geometry tells the history of settlement in the concept of human transformations. The layering of historical maps and landscape built signs is the basic instruments for the knowledge and transformation of the territory. A sustainable landscape management follows the development of the environmental legacy.
