Abstract

The Campania Region, in the South of Italy, is a territory where numerous Wasted Landscapes (WL) are recognisable, as the result of serious social
and governmental problems.
Through the last decades, many factors have been overlapping in this complex palimpsest: illegal developments and the measures to legitimize
them can be paradoxically understood as real cornerstones for the local planning system; the traces of the post-Fordist abandoned landscapes are
mixed with the historical remains, showing the deep sense of identity that still persists in the territory. On the other hand, the Campania Plain
is a porous territory characterised by an adaptive resilience. This is interwoven with the presence of areas of outstanding natural beauty, with a
resilient interstitial agriculture, and with a fragmented but resistant economy.
In this paper, two emblematic case-studies are discussed (Casaluce and Est-Naples), understanding WL as an additional category of waste with
the urgent need to be recycled, in order to: reactivate urban metabolism; to improve the quality of life, the spatial quality of the territory, and the
regional economy.
