Between nature and landscape there may be an intrinsic solidarity, but the relation between landscape and infrastructure, landscape and urban territories is not so reassuring and taken for granted, since this relation is all too often based upon the basic needs of use that do not contemplate the natural value of the places and the needs of the weak urban conglomerates. This is a reality stemming from diachronistic staggering touching different links between infrastructural giants and the hope for survival of scattered urban areas. Within this framework, the project finds itself immersed in a complex and always fluctuating experiment. Design strategies and techniques are not aimed at constructing finished, unambiguous solutions, but at structuring transformation rules, conditions of coherence that may produce a vision able to integrate an overall view and the focus on urban micro-dimensions. An exemplary case where these unbalances emerge with strength may be found in the environmental system of the river-bed of the Esino river where the Sentino creek flows into the river (Gola della Rossa Park) in the portion between the Genga Stazione district and the San Vittore delle Chiuse hamlet, in the province of Ancona. It is a complex mix between landscape with a strong character and towns that are subject to the intersection of a huge bundle of railway and road infrastructures. It is a segment full of connections between natural landmarks, with a historical and natural value, and artificial ones, that may be clearly become an issue for the whole environment.
