Abstract

The assay focus on the reading of Agrarian Cultural Landscape (ACL) and the role of local communities through the interpretative key of resilience. The coevolutionary approach has been recognized as a key framework for understanding change in complex social ecological systems (Norgaard, 1994, 1997, Naveh, 1998, Georgescu Roegen, 2003) and as a foundational concept for ecological economics (Gowdy, 1994, Costanza et al., 1997). In that sense, it helps to identify the set of anthropic and natural relationships that influence change within landscapes, determining their destiny or, in other words, whether landscapes are conserved or lost. The need to protect local resources, and conserve the functions that come from natural capital, determines processes that can be guaranteed in a more efficient and sustainable way by local communities. The assay uses the coevolutionary approach; it starts with a critical theoretical framework of the key concepts of work, it proposes categories for the study of resilience in the ACL and it continues with the historical overview of the definitions and analysis of localized and comparative mapping and of existing recognitions at international level. The case study chosen for the application depth are the UNESCO vineyard landscapes and, in particular, they have become a laboratory for the experimental phase of the research, which sees a resilient strategy in the UNESCO candidacy process. Fundamental to the thesis were the structured interviews conducted during site visits. The thesis wishes to suggest new point of views for governance of the historical agricultural heritage, that is founded on continuity through enhanced the resilience community
