The Management of Contemporary Cultural Landscapes in Linear Infrastructure Projects
This paper aims at reasoning upon the development of contemporary cultural landscapes: do they exist or do only historic cultural landscapes exist? Is it possible to provide an interpretative reading of cultural landscapes through a comprehension of their structure? Does the planning process have a role in developing cultural landscape dynamics? Many scholars have analyzed cultural landscapes under an historical perspective, nevertheless, an investigation concerning their contemporary potential structure in literature is missing. According to this research, contemporary cultural landscapes are based on an intertwined presence of local-upper local durable dynamics, and differ from historic ones for this stronger relationship. A shared vision estimates the improvement of linear infrastructures decisive for territories development. Linear infrastructures are an exemplificative, limit case of the relationships between local and upper dynamics, as they derive from rationalities of upper levels but they physically cross local territories. Here the challenge with contemporary cultural landscapes: is it possible to support/activate cultural landscape dynamics within linear infrastructure projects? An interpretative model to evaluate the presence of contemporary cultural landscapes will be carried out and applied to three Italian linear infrastructures. The aim is that of starting up the elaboration of a method to support the development of contemporary cultural landscapes in planning processes.
