Professional profile

The course aims to train experts capable of managing the project of open space in relation to the constitutive material of the landscape, namely soil, water and vegetation, to be considered as exhaustible resources. The transformation of the open space is both a significant aesthetic experience and an ethical and environmental responsibility in view of the finite resources. The professional profile must be able to transform the space we live in and must be able to take into deep consideration the finitude of the Earth’s resources. Particular importance is given to the management of water and soil in the project. They become central to re-signifying places in the light of the transformations linked to the finiteness of resources, the changeability of the climate and the adaptive capacities that the landscape project offers as an intrinsic characteristic to trigger life processes.
