Passing from italian remotes countryside to Hong Kong city can create dislocation and estrangement in the traveller-type of the XXI century. But it can also be important to outline guidelines of an alternative working method to land, for example, a new treaty of geography, to identify similarities unusual and unforeseen tensions and friction that can arise only with comparison of reality of antipodes. Italian Landscape Practice is collection of pictures, videos and text by Alessandro Carboni.

In each of them the artist has been developing interdisciplinary landart projects focused on particular aspects of cultural heritage from environment to people, from agriculture to architecture etc.
