Abstract: “Landscape planning means strong forward-looking action to enhance, restore or create landscapes” (ELC, Florence 2000).
According to the “European Landscape Convention” the study begin “identifying throughout the territory the degraded sites, analyzing their characteristics, forces and pressures transforming them and taking note of changes”. Trial field is the porphyry territory in Trentino. The natural scenery and the cultural features are strained by the signs and over development that have unshaped the natural profile and morphology compromising the continuity and identity of the site. The main outcome of this is a “patchwork landscape”, not a country cared for by a general overlook, or a concerted plan to a transforming landscape.
The aim of the research is to find strategies to read and to interpret this particular landscape to its sustainable future. From this viewpoint, negative topics as “refuse”, “recycling”, “scrap”, “wound” become occasion for re-thinking and create landscapes. The general aim is to rethink the extraction’s landscapes in order to obtain their development based on a balanced relationship between social need, economy and environment. In this way it is possible to find the linkage between the quarry’s activities, the tourism, the agriculture and the new energy production, so that the degraded territory can be transformed in new “created landscapes”. This would appropriately fit the goals of the “European Landscape Convention”.
