Historical landscapes: between research and sustainable management


The extension of meanings and values relating to the concept of landscape that has taken place in recent decades has had multiple consequences on the epistemology of the disciplines that deal with landscapes (from geography, to history and archaeology, to the natural sciences); on protection, no longer linked to individual monuments, but feasible through territorial planning. With this concepts in mind different research teams at the CH department develop multidisciplinary research in order to identify and document characteristics of historical Italian landscapes and their evolution using traditional and innovative tools.
