On Salvatore Settis’s
Paesaggio Costituzione Cemento
The book written by Salvatore Settis represents at the same time an academic, well researched study on the story of landscape and heritage preservation in Italy and a harsh denunciation of the failure of the Italian ruling elites in implementing effective conservation politics. The author illustrates the scientific and political value of the book, discusses its main argumentations and highlights some contradictions whose further analysis could enrich the flourishing Italian debate on the subject.
