The historical mutability of the landscape is paradoxically the most permanent feature of the Po Delta. We are talking about a territory of marshlands and lagoons that has always been poor, but which was in the middle of one of the most important land reclamation operations in Italy. In the post-war period, the Delta was the subject of planning ideas which, if implement-ed, would have devastated it, far beyond what happened with the coastal urbanizations, also because in the years of the economic boom the focus was on "modernization", but there was also talk of the Po Delta Park. Another recurring fragility is undoubtedly the environmental one, associated with the issues of hydraulic risk, saline ingression, widespread tourist urbani-zation without quality, and rising sea levels. The Delta constitutes an extraordinary laboratory for project research on the issues posed by climate change, necessary to define strategies centred on conflicts, contradictions and opportunities.
