Trends in historical geography. Applied research and methods for spatial and landscape planning


Elena Dai Prà, University of Trento (Italy)


Landscape interpretation and analysis in a Geo-historical perspective, that is a multitemporal research on landscape patterns and landscape changes, represent an essential requirement in order to implement a sustainable spatial planning.
The proposed session will be focused on methodological samples concerning researches (also in progress) of applied historical geography, intended as a project-tool for geolocating, mapping and analysing the cultural features of present-day landscapes, but also for land-use, landscape and urban planning and, generally speaking, for territorial governance.
The main topics and case-studies of such a vision of historical geography include, but not limited to: requalification of built-up, marginal and fringe areas; rural landscapes protection and development;  forest, agroforest, croplands and, in general, natural vegetated surfaces management; boundary areas pressing challenges.
