‘Symbiotic field’ refers to the space, topos and chora or locus and spatium, where natural and artificial systems intersect, producing the multilayered construct of landscape. Throughout this essay, we will resort to a series of established concepts proceeding from sources diverse in location and time across the geographic configuration of the multidisciplinary debate on landscape to enumerate components of a possible construct. That construct is meant to be climbed upon and then thrown away like Wittgenstein’s ladder, which we may call here the ‘ladder of Rome’, as we are discussing matters related to urbanity.
