Required language skills: english Ancient societies, including the Roman one, had a strong impact on the environment and landscape. Each of these civilizations has in fact had to deal with urbanization and the management of natural resources. These phenomena have recently begun to be investigated from a historiographical, archaeological and legal history point of view. The basic question raised by these studies is whether there were forms of ecological awareness and attention to the ecosystem among the ancients. The question, which at first reading might have seemed provocative a few years ago, is now very topical, so much so that a first affirmative answer comes from the different lines of investigation so far pursued by ancient historians, economic historians, archaeologists and environmental historians. In line with these results of ancient research, this project therefore intends to shed light, through a broad survey of sources and an interdisciplinary approach, if and in what way the legal sources, in particular the Roman ones, have had perception of environmental issues, as well as rebuilding the capacity of Roman society to face the challenges concerning its ecosystem. In fact, it is possible to identify within the Roman regulatory and jurisprudential corpus some measures aimed at combating, even if only indirectly, pollution in urban settlements, deforestation and exploitation of the subsoil and water, as well as protecting the landscape. The different aspects of environmental awareness in the ancients, which will emerge from the stripping of the sources, will become the driving force for a new enhancement of the historical and archaeological findings in the Parma area, which should be promoted by economic operators in sustainable tourism.
