Two researches and a teaching experience underlined the role of the architectural project on the protection of the agricultural landscape and of important archaeological areas. These reflections allowed to focus on some concepts showing, perhaps with more precision, how architecture achieves to bring out the resilient part of the places interacting positively with the protection of the soil. During too many years, according to an erroneous hermeneutic of the Modern Movement the soil, has been considered as a synonym of the Cartesian plane and, therefore, as a homogeneous and isotropic surface, transposing in an ideological way René Descartes’ invention with an unconditional trust in the technological progress.In the second half of the twentieth century, the analogy between the soil and the Cartesian plane was spread. It produced disastrous consequences for the territory. In the development of many European cities, and especially in Italy, historical-morphological peculiarities of extra moenia fabrics sometimes have not been recognized; these are di erent from historical parts of the town but equally with signi cant strati cations. Moreover, in the relationship with the lands outside the walls, the geometries and the colours of the agriculture have not been appreciated enough like an authoritative second term of the dialectic town - countryside. Urban prevailed on rural parts in their worst way: the volumetric congeries of contemporary suburbs. In these places, the fragments of the crops are closed and forgotten in the lifeless spaces between buildings and road infrastructures. O en as the result of a ferocious urbanization, the growth of the city led to the demonization of the architecture. It was inappropriately associated with the land use, confusing its qualities with the defects of an unformed and uncontrolled mass.
