Brianza is a prototype of recurring situations in the relationship between residential spaces and agricultural spaces in contemporary towns and cities. Described in terms of their differences, these show the evolution of the historical landscape, the reasons for its deterioration and new planning possibilities. The simplifi ed fabric of the Vimercate countryside, the strings of woodland and built-up areas in the hills, the clearings in urban areas and the woodland and countryside of the Groane open up prospects for new and different types of urban agriculture linked to local specifi cities. The future proposed is plural and examines different relationships between agriculture, collective spaces, the redevelopment of existing settlements, choosing the path of a halt to urban growth and the reconstruction of infrastructure and landscape quality in the Brianza area.

Keywords: Diffuse urbanisation; multifunctional agriculture; soil
