Riconoscere e interpretare i paesaggi dei sistemi arborei tradizionali: i casi studio della maremma laziale e del monte Etna

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Starting from the Sixteen’s of the past century it occurred in Italy, although with differences among the plane areas and themarginal hill or mountain ones, a deep transformation in the physiognomy of arboriculture following new architecture andnew management criteria developed for an industrialized agriculture. Indeed, some traditional agricultural landscapes havemaintained their functional and structural complexity. The present study refers to an interdisciplinary methodology developedfor identifying and mapping the traditional landscapes through an approach based on multitemporal analysis of land usemaps, visualization of land use persistences and evaluation of their representativeness. The methodology allows also to cataloguingthe landscapes of arboriculture in hierarchically ordinate homogenous landscape systems and units through landmetric and statistical indexed that allow the evaluation of their environmental, agronomic and socioeconomic values. Theresearch could be useful as tool of safeguard, valorisation and monitoring of these irreproducible agricultural areas.
