Abstract

The need to overcome the conception of landscape protection faced at exceptional episodes is strongly felt, in order to impose a widespread landscape planning, a necessity acknowledged since a long time by the European Landscape Convention. In this sense, “everyday landscape”, by virtue of its polysemy, becomes an authentic expression of the historical, cultural, natural, morphological and aesthetic values of an area, and therefore able to express the soul of a place. It recognizes the ability to express the complex and secular synthesis between nature and culture; its protection and enhancement seeks to safeguard the values that it expresses as perceived manifestations of identity. Given that the anthropogeographic landscape is also an aesthetic object - and therefore its perception can become figural perception - we must necessarily be aware of the size of landscape’s harmony. The chromatism is among the visual and perceptive factors that influence the feeling of landscape’s consistency or inconsistency, and is capable, within a more or less heterogeneous formal organization, of welding or dissociating the composite set of global morphology. A chromatic spectrum consistent with the everyday landscape speaks of that place and tells its history, culture, climate, geology. The colour thus assumes an ethical and social value: it should, therefore, be thought, reasoned and above all generated by the site. Colour that evolves from the site but that can not impose itself on it.
