The study is a contribution to open a reflection about Ater's new capabilities, starting from the economic crisis and the renewed housing problems, as it has emerged in the last years. The reconstruction of the best experiences that occurred on the territory in the housing policy, could be functional to assembly a new toolbox useful to front off, in the new legal definitions, the challenges of the present. The architectural research has highlighted significant contributions to the history of the area of Latina, about how this territory has absorbed and repeated, under the guise of his own invention, the trends and the cultural debate on modern architecture in Italy, along the entire time of Italian XX century. Within this context it is possible plotting unusual routes that contributed to the physical construction of the territory beyond the representation of its founding myth: The experience of the early post-war reconstruction and the theme of neo-realism in architecture, the season of Ina-Casa; the self-taught Brustolin realizations; the proposals for renovation of the buildings in the historic centers since the early seventies are part of a layered and rich heritage still partly to be investigated. Leaning on the original myth of land reclamation and new towns, there is a built land, perceivable from the different landscapes that compose it, marked by the events of the twentieth century and whose achievements in housing policies are a consistent part.
