The Landscape is always changing, following the social and physichal mutation of the contemporary society.
However, nowadays a more critical thinking should point out how our networks works as an information conveyor.
Physical proximity is not essential to make public landscapes works, as it is surrogated by the virtual space in the social networks. Therefore, answering to the request of sharing informations, the Landscapes should revert to the main place for social interactions.
Cluster Theory points out how the quality of the urban spaces affected their use and the daily life over the years both in a social and a cultural point of view.
