This work wants to initiate a reflection about the institution and progress of Landscape Observatories in the Italian context as instruments which are trying to give an operative support to landscape management. In particular this study will debate the problem of the definition and the lack of a common legislative direction, which at the moment has created the most of problems with the correct activation of these supporting instruments and the application of the European Landscape Convention. The most significant cases about the regions of Piemonte, Puglia and Veneto will be analyzed. The comparison between different local Observatories has been performed (by) analyzing the basic theoretical conditions, the operative choices and the social attitudes that emerged towards the Landscape asset, the territory and the inhabitants. Finally it has been highlighted how these landscape management efforts, if interconnected and linked with other experiences, could begin a new way of understanding the administration, the development and the transformations of the territory.
