In recent years, attention has grown on the importance of the food heritage-related themes within landscape, cultural and social dynamics. This paper presents a theoretical introduction explaining the concept of foodscape as an integrated system of ecological network, connected to the role of local food production for the recovery of abandoned areas. The processes of land recovery and transformation find an opportunity in urban agriculture to improve the cities’ quality of life by interpreting the food cycle process as a system able to produce social innovation and inclusion through new technologies, establish a strong relationship with public and private stakeholders, reconnect society with their landscape identity and geographical characteristics, make initiatives economically sustainable and scalable and build up a comprehensive and flexible framework to guide cities to implement adapted strategies with multifunctional use at different scale. The real-time experiences of the SATURN EIT Climate-KIC research project in the Trentino region are the condition to test, map and verify the theoretical positions, and the main ongoing outcomes will be briefly presented. With this overview the contribution freshly explores the landscapes and the food production dynamics aiming to reintegrate the natural assets within the city climate change impact strategy.

Abstract

In recent years, attention has grown on the importance of the food heritage-related themes within landscape, cultural and social dynamics. This paper presents a theoretical introduction explaining the concept of foodscape as an integrated system of ecological network, connected to the role of local food production for the recovery of abandoned areas. The processes of land recovery and transformation find an opportunity in urban agriculture to improve the cities’ quality of life by interpreting the food cycle process as a system able to produce social innovation and inclusion through new technologies, establish a strong relationship with public and private stakeholders, reconnect society with their landscape identity and geographical characteristics, make initiatives economically sustainable and scalable and build up a comprehensive and flexible framework to guide cities to implement adapted strategies with multifunctional use at different scale. The real-time experiences of the SATURN EIT Climate-KIC research project in the Trentino region are the condition to test, map and verify the theoretical positions, and the main ongoing outcomes will be briefly presented. With this overview the contribution freshly explores the landscapes and the food production dynamics aiming to reintegrate the natural assets within the city climate change impact strategy.
