Abstract

The theme we intend to discuss deals with the archaeological landscapes; we propose to inves-tigate a method of intervention, starting from both acquiring knowledge about the history of archaeological landscapes and setting a theoretical frame to point out the relationship between the archaeology fragments and the landscape as a whole, and its changing during the time. According with Farinelli (1991), “landscape” isn’t a summary of things, but it’s a way to represent and look at the things in the world, when only through the landscape the things of the world stay together and it’s possible perceive them in their entirety. Therefore the ar-chaeological ruins represent a treasure of sense, because if they certainly mark an absence - for their state of fragmentation that doesn’t allow to recognize their functionality – they all repre-sent a presence that testifies their eternity; when they are part of our landscape, they allow us to individuate the spatial relations between the several existing tracks of the ancient architec-ture. The local archaeological heritage in Italy is an element that strongly characterize the land-scape; therefore we can’t consider landscape just as the natural environment but we have to understand how it has been modified according to human activity and construction, and try to find out historical, physical and geographical characters, to preserve it and to plan improve-ments in its usability, accessibility and enhancement. Archaeological landscape as common good could be the key-word to synthesize our point of view. The archeological landscape is going to be analyzied in its dual character, defined by Hum-boldt (Il cosmo, 2008) as “double sense with allusion”, meaning that a some world has two senses: its aesthetic nature, in which take place change of cultural significates related to hu-man being’s activities, and scientific meaning, that is measurable, universal and objective. Starting from these two different points of view, our paper intends to deal with the coast of Vesuvian territory, a very complex built environment which is very rich in terms of archaeo-logical fragments, as the several roman villas as Villa dei Papiri, Villa dei Misteri, Villa di Oplontis and Villa Sora. The different tracks can be red and understood not only as historical ruins, but in their en-tirety and completeness in our nowadays landscape; to this aim we need a reformulation of new interpretating and designing items on this palimpsest, that need to communicate to fu-ture generations the ruins’ significance in the contemporary landscape and city.
