  • Ri-Vista. Research for landscape architecture

    New Meanings / Novel Equilibria

    Call for Papers

    Berndnaut Smilde, Nimbus De.Groen, 2017 | photo: Cassander Eeftinck Schattenkerk (image courtesy: the artist and Ronchini Gallery)


    The COP15 for Biodiversity has recently approved the Kunming-Montreal Framework, a protocol for the protection of planetary ecosystems and a parallel pillar to the Paris Agreement on Climate Change in the fight against the global ecological crisis. A network of areas with varying degrees of naturality and artificiality should extend over 30% of the Earth by 2030. The framework raises multiple issues projecting the conservation, management, and reformation of our contemporary anthro-ecological systems toward new forms of equilibrium associated with the notions of sustainability and resilience. In this collective enterprise, contemporary landscape design seems to have the opportunity to play a key role well beyond technical engineering and cultural preservation. This issue of Ri-Vista aims to collect cases, experiences, and reflections, from the local to the geographical scale, in which the design of landscape succeeds in grounding new narratives and new topologies into the land, scenarios of re- signification of places and nature-society dynamics, and, by that, new meanings for our living on the Earth.

    Call for Papers

    Image by Pio De Rose


    For humankind and for Landscape Architecture the plant kingdom provides extraordinary and unexplored opportunities to activate remedies in dense damaged urban contexts and in abused and abandoned sites. Human beings will head toward a better future starting from a deeper knowledge on plants as they promote processes of adaptation, restoration and invention aimed to preserve and generate new life. In particular, for Landscape Architecture it is mandatory to better understand plant communities in order to elaborate researches and experimentations truly effective in transforming the space we inhabit. The call for paper is open to scholars and professionals who wish to explore deepen the role, between science, ethics, and aesthetics, of plant communities in the landscape project.

  • Storia delle Donne

    La rivista Storia delle Donne nasce dalla collaborazione di studiose specialiste di epoche e discipline diverse –formate in scuole di varie università italiane– e si propone come pubblicazione ad alto contenuto scientifico. SdD ha periodicità annuale, i numeri sono tematici in ragione della scelta redazionale di presentare ciascun fascicolo come un unicum perché meglio siano colte, messe a fuoco e sviluppate l’evidenza e l’importanza dell’argomento proposto. La sezione «Oltre il tema» ospita articoli non attinenti al tema del monografico.  L’idea che è a fondamento del progetto SdD guarda al nesso tra storia e politica delle donne, ma accorda priorità a quello fra storia e politiche per le donne e con le donne; questa è una delle ragioni per cui la scelta del tema dei fascicoli è dettata dai processi in atto e dalle urgenze che la contemporaneità propone. Il tema viene sviluppato nella sezione «Presente» da contributi che lo illustrano con incroci di approccio e metodo volutamente pluridisciplinari, senza che questo identifichi SdD con l’interdisciplinarietà degli Women’s Studies. Nella sezione «Passato» i saggi restituiscono lo spessore storico e diacronico nella longue durée che si snoda dalle civiltà antiche fino al Novecento. Molto accentuata la proiezione internazionale della rivista, sia nei temi che nelle autrici e autori, gli articoli sono quindi pubblicati in diverse lingue: oltre all’italiano naturalmente, anche in francese, inglese, spagnolo, portoghese.

    Tutti i testi pubblicati in SdD sono valutati, secondo le modalità del doppio cieco (double blind peer review), da due referees individuati nell’ambito di un’ampia cerchia di specialiste e specialisti.

  • Webbia

    The Journal of Plant Taxonomy and Geography (Webbia) is a full open access peer-reviewed journal on Plant Systematics, Nomenclature, Phylogeny, Phytogeography contributions deal with the Vascular Plants.  It aims to allow research in botanical topics such as Taxonomy, Nomenclature, Systematics, Molecular Phylogeny, Conservation, Biogeography, and History fo Botany and Botanical collections.  

    A first assessment after returning home: 2020-2021

    Two years have passed since Webbia returned home with Firenze University Press and it is time to take stock of the state of the art in which she finds herself. During the two-year period 2020-2021 and in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic, Webbia managed to maintain an excellent editorial level by publishing a total of 49 articles, 1 review, 2 comments and 1 point of view. Overall, 48 new taxa (including species, hybrids, series) and 16 nomenclatural updates (including new combinations and status nomenclatural, new synonyms, new names) were published.
    All this was possible thanks to the sensitivity and interest of an audience of scholars who gave breath and increased the global credibility of the journal by believing in Webbia's role as a communication tool in the international botanical community in the field of plant taxonomy. Thanks to all those who have allowed this success. Here a special thanks goes to all the Associated Editors who have accepted to join the journal with their prestigious credentials, as well as to those who have directly worked in the review process by making their professionalism and their time available to Webbia. A special thanks goes to the FUP managerial staff who followed me in the transfer from a previous publishing house to a new editorial experience, as well as to the one dedicated to copyediting without which nothing would have been possible with excellent editorial outcomes.

    On these premises and on the results achieved in these two years with FUP, Webbia is preparing to face a new year with ambitious actions including the beginning of the publication of "special issues" dedicated to monographic contributions of international importance, in the hope of consolidating and stimulating its growth. We believe in this project to be shared with those who have supported us until now and will want to do it in the future, remembering Webbia as one of the first European journals in Plant taxonomy that will soon see its 120th anniversary from its foundation (1905- 2025).

    Thank you all, and let me say ... Ad Maiora!
