Armonie composte: cinque anni di dibattito sul paesaggio monastico
This essay describes the results of the Armonie composte project and the transmitted interdisciplinary method for studying monastic landscapes. Armonie composte is a series of seminars on monastic landscapes, that arises from the collaboration between the Abbey of Praglia and the University of Padua. The main purpose of the seminars is to show how the territorial planning and care system, based on the particular purpose of community life indicated by the Rule of St. Benedict, can still contribute to sustainable territorial planning. The project foresees the organization of an extended seminar and a workshop. Each seminar, organized in May at the Abbey of Praglia, alternates lectures and in-depth discussions. Furthermore, other papers which are in line with the aims of the project have been published in two special series by Padova University Press: Paesaggi and Quaderni di Praglia.
