Sassello January 2009 #23. A sense of place part 2

What identity is to be assigned to a place as the one I am progressively presenting ? Isn't there all the sense of modernity ? Of individualistic expression ?
Landscape,as we can experience it, is in part the outcome of the human insider's need to communicate an identity. The communication functions, when we refer to current manifestations, gets easier to perceive given our commonality with the symbols. But the modernity comes with a loss of consistency. The relation between the buildings is no longer related to a common use or adaptation to the land. The only one is to be located in the same area, on the same soil. No it is not as flipping through a thematic magazine. Instead you can read the different life paths of the people.
