This research was made after the preparation of a project coordinated by Marina Montuori in collaboration with Barbara Angi, Massimiliano Botti, Olivia Longo, Alessandro Muraca, Filippo Orsini, Angela Squassina. This research was based on the need to conceive an architecture taking into account the natural processes and the related anthropic mechanisms that determine the phenomenal reactions of a place. The analyzed case study has included an agricultural area in the locality Moceniga in the territory of Rosolina (RO), in the Po Delta Park. Agriculture is constantly approached to fish farming that becomes an added value as a tourist attraction. The rural landscape of Polesine is based on a complex mechanism that brings together all the environmental and productive aspects, to which add cultural aspects of the belonging context that define its specificity. The main objective of this research was to make synergistic agriculture, fish farming and landscape, allowing the latter an interesting evolution in the qualitative sense, untying agriculture and fish farming form their purely quantitative function in order to entrust them images of high aesthetic potential.
