The Geography Course, during the fourth year in Architecture Master Degree, approaches the planning problem on the themes of the extraurban territory: vurnerable and regained areas, activities that have to match with a geographical environment and any other matter related with extraurban contexts, are faced as plans to establish a sustainable arrangement of conflicts and disorders. Obviously the water problem is an important key in the analysis and then in the planning moment, so that we choosed the array of six works that cope with water issues, as different matters. The first plan is about an industrial area on high risk of water-flood, that means both a huge waste of public funds than an exponential growth of engenieeering hydraulic operas. Is this the only way to follow? This plan shows there’s another solution, based on the respect of nature, water and soils. The second and third plans are about a saline wedge that is quickly permeating the coastal plains. The question is how to help the recycling process of those soils as fertile ground, and where can be found the water needed for ‘washing’ and irrigating these soils, since water is lessen. Two different plans that can be integrated. The fourth plan: a lake is drying up. It would be an obvious fate, if it wasn’t happening unnaturally fast. In the past ten years many trials have been done against this drying process: is still possible to think to slow it? This plan tries to slow the evaporation and provides to create the memory place for the lake’s history. The fifth plan concerns the restoration of a mill’s system in a park, as to produce and partially use the own watermills’ energy. The sixth project is about a creek itself and it’s surroundings: tuff-mines, a system of old mills and caves, a nineteenth century’s aqueduct, the natural environment, an archeological area. All those elements convey to a creek-park plan, in order to promote slow walking paths along some fragile parts of the “forra” (a thin water-eroded valley).
