The combination of "landscape and cultural heritage" as a whole embraces the extraordinary material legacy of Italian history, the wealth of art in the city and the region. Perhaps more than in other countries, this heritage - huge and widely recognized for its uniqueness - is a foundational element of national identity and contributes to the quality of individual and collective life. t is a public good, which, however, it is hard to recognize and protect itself. This difficulty reflects a form of impoverishment, which limits the right of citizens of today and future generations the history and beauty. Italy has a unique cultural heritage and landscape, which protects and enhances, maintaining its position as one of the least gener- ous in Europe in the financing of culture. The conservation and landscape management, and more generally of the natural and cultural heritage, more and more cross routes of spatial planning. The question of landscape investing relations between society and territory, declaring certain fundamental contradictions of con- temporary economic and social development, revealing inherent unsustainability, inability to continue, without jeopardizing the survival of wealth of resources that can be transmitted to future generations, without producing new poverty.

The parks, it can contribute significantly to the enrichment of the natural and cultural underpinning the quality of the landscape.
