The historic dimension of landscape is analyzed in relation to the holistic approach required in contemporary landscape research. The role played by historical rural landscapes and their multifaceted characters and functions are investigated. The major changes that have occurred in the Italian rural landscapes over the last two centuries are described by referring to their main causes and to the parallel change in the urban–rural dialectic. The notion of “cultural landscape” is applied to historic rural landscapes, according to a varied range of conditions and characteristics. Knowledge, identification, interpretation, and characterization are fundamental actions to define sustainable and diversified strategies. To this end, heritage strategies and policies must go together with agricultural sectorial policies, since agriculture and farmers are the major actors of rural landscape protection and transformation.
