  • Abstract in English : The purpose of this paper is to investigate the relationship between the concepts of "culture" and "cultural landscape", both regarding the actual urban space. As the semantic spheres of these terms overlap because there are many other almost similar approaches, but tributary to specific areas – as “cultural geography”, “cultural anthropology”, “cultural history”, etc.), clarifying and discussing the nuances that distinguish these terms and concepts, customizing them for Romania's situation, become a necessary and useful action. In terms of the architect-urban planner, urban culture is like an umbrella under which takes place the theoretical and practical planning work; finding the common denominator between the various theories that govern this area of research, may seem an utopist attempt. This approach is a sketch of a possible research route in order to identify the core curriculum in the high ramification of studies on urban culture and urban cultural landscape.
