International Landscape Study Days

18. February 2022

The theme of abandonment of working and living places – from rural to mountain communities, minimal living spaces to large industrial complexes – has long been at the centre of the debate on the future of our planet and has given rise to a flourish of projects which, even as regards the landscape, has generated new methods and attitudes. Current forms of abandonment need further study. The landscape and garden culture can approach this with a mindset and the means that consider this condition a value in itself and an opportunity for growth, seeing actions not as corrective measures but as an invaluable exercise in coexistence.


Over three days, the International Landscape Study Days by the Scientific Committee of the Fondazione Benetton Studi Ricerche will focus on abandonment from diverse points of view.
