This research comes from the observation that over the past fifty years the Italian landscape has been radically altered by urban development, often carried out without formal and functional qualities. There is a fundamental discrepancy between legislation on landscape conservation and its implementation, especially in cases of measures without a specific object, measures that take into account the "everywhere", the "real world" (Farina, 2001) and not only individual elements of unquestionable value, as indeed required by the most recent Community guidelines. In view of these premises, after a survey of the different cultural approaches that have guided and still guide standards, studies and practices related to the landscape, the urbanization of soils has been identified as a parameter that can be used to evaluate the state of Italian landscapes, as it affect indiscriminately every expressions of landscape values. This paper proposes also, on the basis of qualitative and quantitative trends of urbanization, the identification of "trending landscapes" derived also from Local Strategic Plans provisions.
