Abstract

The experience of adaptation and instability to a plurality of threats that question the life of human beings on the planet, from the post‐pandemic to political conflicts, up to the danger looming in the background—the upheavals expected from climate change—impose a reflection that recog‐ nizes that landscape/cultural heritage plays a key role in preservation/enhancement as a specific resource for its “human‐centered development”, based on values included. These threats are chal‐ lenges in which phenomena that require solidarity and common actions are faced, which should lead humans to cooperate to face them. The European Landscape Convention of 2000 attributed an important role to the landscape, as an “essential component of the life context of peoples”. The phase of listening to the territory and participatory and co‐design processes are necessary tools for under‐ standing the expectations and perceptions of the communities, co‐exploring possible new uses of the landscape, being capable of generating added value for all stakeholders, and adopting a “win‐win” approach. From this perspective, this contribution poses the following research question: how to build collaborative processes capable of putting local institutions, businesses, and local communi‐ ties in synergy, to identify enhancement strategies for the cultural landscape? This study explores the potential of an integrated, incremental, and adaptive decision‐making approach, oriented to‐ ward the elaboration of shared choices aimed at the elaboration of territorial enhancement strategies attentive to the specificity of the multiple values and complex resources that characterize the cul‐ tural terraced landscapes of the Costa Viola (Italy). In particular, the interactions between different knowledge, approaches, and tools makes it possible to formulate scenarios, strategies, and actions, contributing to the creation of a richer and more complex context of knowledge of the territory and to the construction of bottom‐up and situated transformation strategies, supported from a decision‐ making process attentive to the identification of values and an understanding of the needs of the local ‘landscape community’ who live and animate it.
