The new impulse experienced in landscape planning in Italy after the National Heritage and Landscape Code of 2004 has changed the frame of Heritage protection as well as regional planning processes and plans, introducing interesting innovations. At the same time, current implementation practices show how even the most certain regulative contents depend on collective interpretation, and institutional actors seldom guarantee the continuity of institutional action and the financial, cognitive and relational resources needed for implementing landscape strategies.
Finally, the paper offers some first evidence from an ongoing pilot project, regarding the mobilization of non-institutional actors whose interests are coherent with and could therefore contribute to the strategies of the Landscape Plan.
