The essay investigates the notion of landscape, starting from its etymological roots and from the definitions of it that have been proposed, revisiting the different ways of depicting it in paintings and in science, in different historical periods and in the light of the cultural assumptions that generated them. It is a path designed to stimulate greater awareness in the understanding and depiction of contemporary landscape where new paradigms of interpretation, new regulatory instruments and the introduction of new technical tools oblige us to rethink the role of design and the practice of it.
