Abstract

Until the late 60s, when the massive pollution of the river waters due to the intensive industrialization and the agricultural soil exploitation has occurred, Isolotto Maggi has been an important touristic attraction, destination of day trips for its bathing beaches. The river Po is in fact the stage of archetypical forms, such as the chimneys of the Centrale Elettrica, mimicking the other towers characterizing the city skyline. Observing this landscape the question emerges, if and in which way architectural disposals may or may not change the entropy of places, namely enforcing order where chaos has taken over, or introducing disturbance where a static and rusted condition seems to lead towards a decaying fate.
