The several meanings that landscape takes in all scientific studies and in the common speech highlight the complexity of a concept that finds in the richness of its dimensions the understanding key and the interpreting matrix for actions aimed at local sustainable development. A new concept of landscape identifies the relationships between the various points of view and different interpretive approaches, overcoming the consideration of territory as a physical-geometrical reality at the service of economic aspects. The paper, starting from the evolution of the landscape’s concept, focuses on the management of its complexity in the transformation processes included in the dynamic context of landscape’s cultural values and in development strategies designed to support and strengthen these values. It has been structured a multidimensional methodological framework oriented to the evaluation of landscape cultural values, tested in National Park of Cilento, Vallo di Diano and Alburni (Italy).
