Ri-Vista is an open access semiannual journal in electronic format. It operates through international call for papers and double blind peer review.

Founded in 2003, since 2014 Ri-Vista is part of the scientific journals of the Department of Architecture of the University of Florence and in 2015 a second series was launched. The journal deals with Landscape Architecture in a traditional disciplinary openness to the contributions of sciences otherwise competent, consolidated over the years in accordance with the nature of the discipline to which it is dedicated. 

The rich articulation of scientific viewpoints, as identified by studies that different disciplines dedicate to the landscape as a category and to landscapes as realities, is therefore the area from which Ri-Vista searches for references concerning design in the broadest sense of this term that Landscape Architecture can express.
