Terraced Landscapes. The “Penisola Sorrentino – Amalfitana” Case

Main Article Content

Vito Cappiello

Abstract

Terraced landscapes are all over the world. They are the tangible evidence of how human life can express itself in the steepest slopes of mountain and coastal areas of the world.

Despite the multi-disciplinary values that terraced landscapes represent throughout the world were scarcely appreciated in the past decades, indeed the interest in their wise management and broader understanding has been constantly growing since the end of the past century. Some of the terraced landscapes have been recognised at international level for their importance (terraces of Ifugao in Philippines, Yuanyang terraces in Yunnan – China, Bali in Indonesia, the Italian Cinque Terre and Costiera Amalfitana included in the UNESCO World Heritage List)” (3rd World Meeting on Terraced Landscape - http://www.terracedlandscapes2016.it/en)

For this and many other reasons we will mention later, calling just upon “preservation and safeguard” of these landscapes and these products – without approaching the situation with more complex strategies, tightly connected to every other touristic attraction of these areas – turns out to be a mere desire, difficult to achieve.
