The outdoor spaces in central Brianza tend to assume the appearance of islands, now separated by portions of built-up land and they are subject to continuous processes of building and the compromise of the land. These processes are particularly risky because today the ‘clearings’ of rural space not only fulfi l an agricultural function, but also play social and environmental roles connected in particular with the hydraulic equilibriums of the entire Milan urban region. A project for the redevelopment of the landscape in those spaces cannot be limited to adopting a perspective of protection associated with a generic idea of ‘park’. It must make an effort to develop new models of agricultural management that are capable of combining the economic sustainability of crop production with a more marked multifunctional role and activity to maintain and reclaim agricultural forms of landscape.

Keywords: Intercluded outdoor spaces; natural infrastructures; multifunctional agriculture
