Abstract

Nowadays, the contemporary dynamics of European rural landscapes have reignite the debate on the role of the farmstead, due to its renewed centrality in the evolution of the countryside and the sustainable and “multifunctional management” of the agro-systems (Van Der Ploeg, 2009). In this respect, have been little explored the colonization schemes of the countryside that took place in Sardinia during the last century around the historical settlements, such as the individual, collective and reformist approaches within tradition and modernity. The paper outlines a synthesis of a doctoral research about settlement transformations of the Sardinian countryside, the issue being the role of the farmstead as a fundamental transformative tool for the modification of the rural landscape. The aim of the paper is to shape the diachronic dynamics of this rural heritage in Sardinia, focusing on the operative relationship between rural buildings and their holdings. Such a minimal unit of interpretation of the landscape dynamics involves the management of the ground, considered as a “thickness” of physical and temporal layers (Gomes da Silva, 2013). A stratification that could be compared to a truly “palimpsest” (Corboz, 1985) where the traditional techniques, the nature of the soils and the materials available in the site literally shaped the landscapes’ features in a residual and adaptable approach in line with the ecological framework. In conclusion, this paper finds out that such dynamics so similar to other marginal areas of Europe could represent a gateway for rethinking the recursion between conservation and modification in rural landscape.
