Abstract

Current climatic, social and financial phenomena have triggered deep modifica/ons in cultural landscapes, threatening their fragile territories and the communities that live in them. Nevertheless, they also represent a challenge to find a renewed link between forms of human activity and the production of landscape in order to understand its future evolu/ons. This paper deals with this field of investigation in the context of the Cinque Terre National Park, in Italy, through scenario planning criteria with the goal of rethinking the heritage-listed system of traditional terraced agriculture systems as an infrastructural element for a resilient territory. Starting from the Universal Soil Loss Equa/on (USLE), it identifies the main territorial factors of uncertainty and accordingly suggests possible intervention categories on the wider scale of the so-called slope units, through 2x2 matrixes. Defining a resilient transforma/on program for the environmental system of the Cinque Terre Na/onal Park over a twenty-year /me frame means considering adaptability as a key aspect in different scenarios that might be generated in the near future.
