Abstract

The aim of this work is to illustrate the current state of a wider project whose general objective is to integrate a number of scientific and methodological approaches and technologies, in order to support local authorities and stakeholders, especially those acting in marginal areas, toward a more sustainable management and use of landscape resources. The proposed methodology has been applied in several real case studies to test its validity. In the present paper the Comunità Montana Alpi Lepontine (CMAL) case is outlined. In order to achieve the adhesion to the European Charter for Sustainable Tourism in Protected Areas, several stakeholders and public bodies, belonging to thirteen municipalities in Northern Italy have cooperated. The efforts to preserve and boost economy in such peculiarly landscape compel to cope with landscape different aspects - scientific, historical, artistic and economical - from a multidisciplinary holistic point of view. This approach enables a complex scientific image, as a driver, in order to suggest integrated and effective planning actions for a rational use of natural and cultural landscape resources. This also requires a stronger integration and improved sharing of information among such a number of local actors. This could be better performed thanks to the state of the art of information technologies such as the paradigm of Interconnected Geo Semantic Web Communities.
