The landscape is living and constantly changing over time. In this framework, permanence, identity and retaining the memory require the integration of co-evolution in landscape planning. To fill the gap between the theoretical concept of resilience and its translations into spatial plans and projects, landscape resilience seems the emerging concept useful to this end. In this perspective, is recognized a lack of explicit adaptative resilient tools in the current Management Plans of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, listed as Cultural Landscapes, about discounting identity in relation to the newcomers. In literature, the debate around the relationship between cultural heritage and resilience has opened (Brunetta et al., 2019) and falls into the UN Target 11.4 postulated by the SDG n.11. To better investigate this challenge, a specific UNESCO case-study is being selected: the Vineyard Landscape of Piedmont, Langhe-Roero and Monferrato, Italy (ref: 1390rev). So, it appears crucial grasping the ratio between permanence-memory and dynamic transformations, which interest a vast area in long-term strategies. How is resilience articulated with identity? What is the ratio between persistence and transformation, to reach both the robustness and allow changes for a community-led active protection? Qualitative results will produce both theoretical and practical outputs, useful to «reinforce the community role and the adaptive capacity of systems» (Brunetta et al., 2019), as the insertion of proactive landscape-resilient tools as part of a renewal of the UNESCO Management Plan.
