The most recent climatic events have highlighted the urgency of pondering on Po irrigated territory, this time considering the growing risk scenarios associated with them. Through a conversation between two voices, a landscape architect and an artist, and more generally, the literature and the art, this paper tries to frame an alternative perspective of this territory. Some thoughts open up to possible evolution scenarios, which deal with the idea of the ‘wild’, the relationship between soil and water, and the public space for the new communities that live there.
