Abstract

Urban and peri-urban agriculture is a pivotal issue in the debate on sustainable management of contemporary metropolitan areas. A multitude of projects are investing large Mediterranean cities such as Rome, Barcelona and Athens. Multiple solutions proposed in social, economic and environmental terms by the new models tested by urban agriculture are playing an important role in the planning’s practices of the open spaces. The investigated cities seem to reflect processes of redevelopment of the agricultural practices, through which new landscapes are cultivated, and new relations are created between farmers, communities and territories within peri-urban areas.
