During the 20th century the processes of transformation of the territory have produced profound changes in the local landscapes, generating banalization and homogenization of the landscape. Moreover, these actions are not always the result of plans according to an organic vision of the territory. The presence of planning tools does not always, indeed, guarantee the effectiveness of safeguarding. This incoherence is particularly evident in the shift from the general principles (including those of the European Landscape Convention and the Code of Cultural Heritage and Landscape) to applications at local level, with particular reference to landscape planning. A significant case of this can be found in the difficulties of the active involvement of citizens in the process of development and approval of landscape plans. In the light of the above considerations, the contribution discusses the crucial but conflicting role of local communities in landscape planning processes, especially linked to the approval and management process of the Guidelines for the Sicilian Regional Landscape Plan (1996).
