World Heritage Cultural Landscape
The Amalfi Coast has been included in the ‘Cultural Landscape’ category, introduced by UNESCO in 1992 alongside natural and cultural sites. Unesco recognized Costiera Amalfitana as an outstanding example of a Mediterranean landscape, with exceptional cultural and natural scenic values resulting from its dramatic topography and historical evolution. What we can see today, represents the result of two components, the natural and the historical one, in a virtuous process that has not distorted the equilibrium of the numerous elements which constitute the territory (vegetation, water, fauna) but it has created a system according to re- known, re-lernt and re-used rules. In this re-appropriation of ancient knowledge frame we can find the rule to preserve but at the same time to create development in Costiera Amalfitana. For visitors, instead, the knowledge of this site will be an occasion to deep themselves in a landscape where man and nature are integrated and have produced a masterpiece.
