Abstract

The landscape has a great cultural and historical importance because it represents the archive of history and the identity of a territory and also of the people, who over the centuries, have inhabited and transformed it. It is the network in which all the issues of cultural heritage are included, each linked to the other: this interaction and stratification should be absolutely considered and emphasized in every action of research, knowledge, conservation and valorisation. Currently the deep change that the concept of cultural heritage has experienced, mainly in the last decades, should address new forms of knowledge-based conservation. The first true innovation lies in the achievement of a holistic vision of cultural heritage. This does not mean abandoning the expertise, but rather asserting a global and inclusive asset, which represents a decisive step forward beyond the traditional concept of interdisciplinary. We must be aware that the conservation is not the outcome of an aseptic and objective action, but an option, based on choices that change over time. It is obvious that an increasing number of subjects, more sensitivity and a perfect 'know-how' must be included in the decision making. The reconstruction of a "total history" of the historic landscape is the key to the development of our future: for knowledge, for education, for valorisation and for exploitation; The editing of archaeological charts according to the criteria of global archaeology is also an appropriate tool even in unusual yet topical areas, related to the problems of development’s planning and environmental sustainability.
