The article “Form, Figure and Landscape for Nature in the city” describes, through a sequence of steps, the urban and territorial threshold that give structure to the Piacenza southern area. It analyzes in detail the elements that define three “rooms” at different scales: - at the territorial scale, the farmhouses define a system of elements as focal point overlooking the agricultural surface, interpreted as background; - at the urban scale, the reconfiguration of the morphological tissue of the INA Casa neighborhoods allows to read a district itself as a specific “room” inside Piacenza urban fabric; - at the architectural scale, the gardens of interior courtyards of via Francigena buildings and a new urban design for public space of Piazza Duomo permit to insert a going-in-depth process to the details.

Abstract

The article “Form, Figure and Landscape for Nature in the city” describes, through a sequence of steps, the urban and territorial threshold that give structure to the Piacenza southern area. It analyzes in detail the elements that define three “rooms” at different scales: - at the territorial scale, the farmhouses define a system of elements as focal point overlooking the agricultural surface, interpreted as background; - at the urban scale, the reconfiguration of the morphological tissue of the INA Casa neighborhoods allows to read a district itself as a specific “room” inside Piacenza urban fabric; - at the architectural scale, the gardens of interior courtyards of via Francigena buildings and a new urban design for public space of Piazza Duomo permit to insert a going-in-depth process to the details.
