Construire les campagnes méditerranéennes. Usages, aménagement et valorisations du foncier agricole périurbain en Provence et en Toscane (1950-2010).

Abstract : Around Aix-en-Provence and Florence, the countryside has been entangled in an urbanisation process which has lead agriculture to step back and adapt. At the same time, at the international level, it has benefited from an excellent image to which rural landscapes and localised agro-food have contributed. This work aims to disclose the relationships between urbanisation, planning methods and development strategies of peri-urban agricultural land in Provence and Tuscany since 1950. To that end, it compares the transformations of agricultural spaces in seven municipalities around Aix-en-Provence and Florence. In a first part, the diachronic cartography and typology of spatial dynamics show how vineyards and olive groves have resisted and how Tuscany has experienced less urban sprawl. The second part compares regulations in Provence and Tuscany and how agriculture has been taken into account in the land planning documents. It clarifies the ways in which local public and private actors have dealt with, restricted or legitimated agricultural land conversion to urban functions since 1950. The third part deals with “terroir” as a means to rebuild Mediterranean countrysides, through renewed urban-rural relationships or the development of tourism and protected denominations of origin (PDO) in the globalisation process. However, despite the success of agritourism in Tuscany or of embedding wine or olive oil in Provence and Chianti, projects of territorial development have suffered in peri-urban spaces from a lack of coordination/harmonization between individual strategies, agricultural stakes, and land planning choices.
