Il libro, frutto degli studi dellautore effettuati durante il suo PhD in Archeologia e perfezionati negli anni successivi, presenta unindagine a carattere territoriale di un tratto della bassa pianura veneta che si estende a sud della citt'e di Padova, tra i Colli Euganei e il bacino meridionale della Laguna di Venezia. Linteresse 'e principalmente rivolto alla ricostruzione del paesaggio di epoca romana, analizzato attraverso una metodologia fondamentalmente basata sui principi teorici dellArcheologia del Paesaggio e sviluppata secondo un approccio di tipo archeomorfologico. Dopo averne definito i caratteri essenziali (sia naturali sia antropici), vengono considerati e analizzati i diversi cambi avvenuti nella sua strutturazione durante il periodo di dominazione romana, compreso tra larrivo degli stessi Romani allinizio del II sec. a.C. e il VI sec. d.C., ovvero quando la guerra greco-gotica (535-553) e la calata dei Longobardi (568) posero fine ad ogni velleit'e di dominio da parte dellImpero Romano dOriente.

This book, originally based on the author's PhD research and revised in the years following, presents a regional study focusing on a stretch of low Venetian plain south of the city of Padua, between the Euganei Hills and the southern basin of the Venetian Lagoon. The primary goal of this research is the reconstruction of the Roman landscape, which is analysed through a methodology based on the theoretical precepts of Landscape Archaeology and developed following an archaeomorphological approach. After its essential features (both natural and anthropic) have been defined, changes and transformations in its structure are evaluated, as they occurred during the period of Roman domination, between their arrival at the beginning of the 2nd c. BC and the 6th c. AD; that is, the point at which the Gothic war (535-553) and the arrival of the Lombards (568) put an end to any desire for domination of the region on the part of the Eastern Roman Empire.
