Abstract

Since the beginning of XX century the Liberty heritage in Varese and the Ticino area has undergone a slow abandon, due to both the development of new architectural trends and the speculative demolition, and is at great risk of loss. The vital element of the Liberty period is the importance of beauty. Protecting this architecture and landscape system allows to taking care of our identity, finding a thread from the relationship between man and nature, to the most recent findings on sustainability and an "ecological" design. The paper presents the results of a survey carried out on the Liberty architectures of the Varese and Ticino territory, a limited geographical area where nature and architecture are complementary elements that blend into a whole to be preserved in its unity.
