Deindustrialisation has led to morphological, functional and symbolic transformations of formerly industrialised areas with a new process of “mise en paysage”, in some cases founded on the heritisation of the industrial legacy, in other cases on new meaning (re-)attributed to environment, as the main physical and symbolic dimension of the re-territorialisation of post-industrial spaces. This chapter focuses on how rivers, primary environmental and ecological components that industrial land uses exploited, buried and contaminated, return to being a (potentially) grounding element of post-industrial landscapes. It presents three case studies in Turin, where the river emerges as a potentially structuring element in rethinking places deeply marked by deindustrialisation and in imagining and building a new landscape.

Abstract

Deindustrialisation has led to morphological, functional and symbolic transformations of formerly industrialised areas with a new process of “mise en paysage”, in some cases founded on the heritisation of the industrial legacy, in other cases on new meaning (re-)attributed to environment, as the main physical and symbolic dimension of the re-territorialisation of post-industrial spaces. This chapter focuses on how rivers, primary environmental and ecological components that industrial land uses exploited, buried and contaminated, return to being a (potentially) grounding element of post-industrial landscapes. It presents three case studies in Turin, where the river emerges as a potentially structuring element in rethinking places deeply marked by deindustrialisation and in imagining and building a new landscape.
