Terraces are landscapes and cultural signs of the people that inhabit them. These terraces are the inheritance – material and immaterial – transmitted throughout history to the different generations.
Since its foundation in 2010, the International Terraced Landscapes Alliance (ITLA) has been committed to recovering the memory of the terraces and reinventing them as active resources that can be used to meet new social demands for: food, agriculture, leisure education, social interaction and finally quality of life with friendly, beautiful and safe landscapes in the face of natural risks.
The IV ITLA World Congress, to be held in March 2019, is an international meeting involving the meeting of local populations, heirs of peasant cultures (agricultural land owners, farmers, agricultural technicians, development technicians local, agro-industrial entrepreneurs, etc …) with professionals, scientists and specialists from multiple disciplines (architects, geographers, agronomists, economists, anthropologists, etc …) and interested citizens from different parts of the world.
