TERRENI (IN)COLTI

[(un)cultivated terrains]

Monocolture (19th century) n. violent and intensive cultivation of a species made for several consecutive years on a single terrain, that therefore tends to become arid.

Multiculture (21st century) n. far-sighted policy, respectful of a terrain, that therefore tends to become rich thanks to the contributions of the different cultures involved.
