La complessità del paesaggio agrario del “giardino mediterraneo” a partire dalla tavola di Alesa

Risultato della ricerca: Chapter

Abstract

The Mediterranean is characterized by landscapes as result from long and complex historical processes in a varied environment.An identification and clarification of the role of the “Mediterranean Garden” (MG) in the Traditional MediterraneanLandscape (TML) is necessary. The MG is often associated with numerous different agricultural landscapes, due to the longhistorical process that has led to their identification. This paper identifies the characteristics of the MG’s landscape, startingfrom a historical overview of Sicily. What emerges is the structural, compositional and functional character of these traditionallandscapes and systems, which is complex, multipurpose and often with mixed forms of agriculture (coltura promiscua). However,a comparison with the typological systems currently used for the cataloguing and mapping of TML’s shows the transversalimportance of MG, and demonstrates how much a better definition and characterization of them is needed.
