Summary/Abstract: Ever since ancient times, there has always been an interaction between art and the environment: human kind either directly interfered on the environment, changing nature, or used the materials provided by it to hew works, or the environment was the one that preserved artifacts over millennia, or the surroundings represented only a source of inspiration for the artists,...Even if in Antiquity, this relationship was not studied as a real science, as it has happened in modern times, when the term ”ecology” will be enriched by diverse connotations.
