Abstract

Retracing the long journey of history, the city and countryside are two moments of the same process or constructive world, even when they express an obvious contradiction, as in the capitalist age, the city and countryside are two aspects of the same unitary world and therefore must be analyzed together. Thus, if the quality of space is recognized for the city, for the countryside the quality of space, its being a produced by man with explicit aesthetic intentions is generally considered a random fact, to be analyzed and historicized to the maximum with landscape categories, which are not codified. There is, of course, a difference with architecture, but the basis of the phenomenon is of the same type.
