The “Plan for Local Cultural Landscapes” (PLCL) presented here is not supposed to be some form of planning with normative value defined by national or regional law but rather a process that consists of several stages and features to direct landscape interventions. The underlying motivation for the construction of a PLCL is that to make quality landscapes (in summary, a beautiful landscape), i.e., the purpose of the objective of a good living, it is necessary and useful to promote and build local processes, namely processes that affect the scale of the small-size landscape. A plan of the local landscape integrates top-down planning by treating assets not identified by the same or the precise details identifying possible interventions on parts of assets identified by institutional planning. Ultimately, a PLCL should not be the instrument capable of arousing, stimulating, and realizing in operational terms the attention and care (i.e., love) of inhabitants for their own territory.
