The approach to the landscape’s project can be included in the concept of valorization and requalification of the natural and built environment. This can be through study, design and use of materials, processes and technical solutions related to the color and its application. In this context, closely linked to the landscape’s perception and its interaction with the user through the senses, the operations that can be planned for the development and qualification of environment and landscape of a particular area can take advantage of the knowledge of bright and colorful materials. Inside the huge area of the design and landscape enhancement are taking special interest the valorization of the areas where built the reclamation-systems inside the Venetian plain and extending to the neighboring provinces of Trentino and Friuli. In a recent research carried out at the University IUAV of Venice in cooperation with Reclamation Consortiums of these territories have emerged needs to valorization and requalification of the reclamation systems. Among them there are: hydraulic supports, pumping stations, water towers, etc.. built after World War II. The reclamation systems made in this age can be seen in the landscape plants as like as functional systems. They are without any design approach from the point of view of design and technology. Often these systems will degrade the quality of the landscape. The Directors of the reclamation consortiums were asked to me to write the guidelines for improve the design of the reclamation architecture to valorize the surrounding landscape. This can be done with an innovative low environmental impact, where the priority is given to the appearance, visibility and perception of the artifacts and the environmental quality. The paper will report the progress of this first research approach in which the theme of the color will be addressed with particular regard to the treatment of the surfaces with innovative coatings (paints, panels, smart materials). Above all, it will be dealt with the issue of valorization of landscapes with bright and color technology by low environmental impact. This research will be done with the aim of achieving concepts: sustainability, reversibility, usability, security, visibility.
