The contemporary debate on the landscape is no longer the expression of the concerns of a single social class or a single discipline. Today, we are faced with a widespread interest, which invades every area of life and knowledge. Not surprisingly, the humanities also participate in this trend, encouraging it with an impressive amount of articles, publications, and debates. Once, so to speak, marginal, the landscape has now become central, if not essential, for disciplines such as aesthetics and geography, but also sociology, anthropology, and archeology. In light of this, the book offers a compendium of what the notion of landscape represents today and how it has become such.
