This lecture is part of a new series titled 'European Rural Landscapes', moderated by Attila Toth
Paola Branduini is Adjungt Professor at the Politecnico di Milano, at the Department of Architecture, Built Environment and Construction Engineering where she teaches diverse classes and studios on urban and landscape regeneration and landscape as heritage. She is also involved in the research on the implementation of an analytical process of inventory and characterisation of Traditional Agrarian Landscapes, based on a multidisciplinary and comprehensive multiscale approach and the identification of guidelines for planning and integrated management.
Traditional Italian Landscapes: Between Conservation and Innovation
In Italy, as well as in other European countries, the traditional agricultural landscapes have been subject to transformations, following the land abandonment or the crop conversion caused by the processes of polarisation towards more urbanised areas. These traditional landscape systems are able to generate productive results for the farmers, but they are also characterised by an environmental, social and cultural role. Some initiatives have been recently implemented as a result of the growing awareness, firstly cultural and then political, on the benefits arising from the protection and enhancement of traditional agro-forestry systems and, consequently, from the traditional landscapes generated from such systems.
