Terraced landscapes are found throughout the world and represent the concrete and tangible evidence of how life can grow even in the steep slopes of the mountain and coastal areas of all parts of the earth. In recent decades the terraces were little appreciated and valued. Since the end of the last century, however, a growing interest in a deeper understanding of these landscapes.

Some of them have received international awards (the Ifugao terraces in the Philippines; the terraces Yuanyang in Yunnan, China, the island of Bali in Indonesia; the Cinque Terre and the Amalfi Coast in Italy, on the List of UNESCO World Heritage ).

Despite this recognition, and the growing worldwide interest, many terraced landscapes are abandoned or are facing risks of collapse, trivialization, pervasive urbanization, loss of their knowledge of the intangible and spiritual heritage that connects to them. The Third World Meeting on Terraced Landscapes, scheduled between the 6th and the 16th October 2016 in Venice and in other places such as Ischia, aims to give a strong impetus to the international commitment to protect and preserve the landscapes in their multifunctionality.

Will offer to participants from different countries and continents, an understanding of the remarkable and diverse heritage of terraced landscapes in particular in Italy and neighboring countries of the Mediterranean and Central Europe.
Taking care of terraced landscapes means recognizing that they may concretely respond to contemporary and different demands, such as the preservation of historical and cultural values, the explanation of environmental and hydrological functions, improving the quality of life through food productionof quality, a sense of belonging, and sustainable development. It is necessarily to experience and share new visions, strategies and innovative features to the terraces and their inhabitants.
