Landing through Informal Blue Infrastructures: the State of Exception in Planning

Risultato della ricerca: Chapter


This paper explore the effects of great economic success in some rural areas of Southern-Eastern Sicily. This paper argue that in this context landscape turns into a "landscape of exception". In orderto explain by wich mechanisms oppression actually occurs, I will use Agamben's concepts. The case study illustrate that also the economic power can produce a system of rules wich are spatially localized, allowing it to reshape landscape by eliminating natural preserve zones and costructing elements of dominance and control. In the case of Southern-Eastern Sicily, this is clearly manifested where planning is suspended to maintain the economic power's superiority and control over the agricultural production and the immigrant workers.
