Description :
This study examines the unauthorised development in the south of Italy and evaluates the consequenc-es of the condono edilizio (building amnesty) policy, in the light of the impact that illegal construction has on the the landscape, both urban, rural and coastal. Through the three case studies in Lazio, Campania and Sicily, it demonstrates that the emergence of new evolutionary trends—hitherto underrepresented within the politicaldebate—demand a different interpretative framework. Three design scenarios are outlined, based on recycling existing social and physical material: they translate into a future-oriented discourse those symptoms of change that are already appearing in an embryonic form throughout Italy’s Mezzogiorno.
