Part I: focus on the idea of landscape: a concept of crossroads of different disciplines (from urban architecture to jurisprudence, from economics to politics, from geography to anthropology, from philosophy to literature, etc.), central to the cultural and political debate today, as the legislation attentive to the problem confirms (European Landscape Convention, Florence 2000). Specific cases of Italian and European literature, through the reading of an anthology of texts of Italian literature and fundamental critical pages: prof. Pesce
Part II: Litarary parks: the exemplary case of Beppe Fenoglio, whose texts find in the landscape and in his representation a foundational element of writing. Finally, the parks and literary itineraries dedicated to the writer both in Alba and in the Langhe (San Benedetto Belbo, Murazzano, Mango, etc.) will be examined with an overall reflection on the direct and bi-univocal relationship that unites landscape and literature.
