“The book efficiently presents links between local practice, landscape conservation, and cultural heritage, as needs to be sustained and promoted at a European scale for sustainable tourism, local development, and rural communities.” • Luca Battaglini, University of Padova


Pastoralism is a diffused and ancient form of human subsistence and probably one of the most studied by anthropologists at the crossroads between continuities and transformations. The present critical discourse on sustainable and responsible development implies a change of practices, a huge socio-economic transformation, and the return of new shepherds and herders in different European regions. Transhumance and extensive breeding are revitalized as a potential resource for inner and rural areas of Europe against depopulation and as an efficient form of farming deeply influencing landscape and functioning as a perfect eco-system service. This book is an occasion to reconsider grazing communities’ frictions in the new global heritage scenario.

Letizia Bindi has been a professor of Cultural and Social Anthropology at several Italian Universities and a visiting scholar in Spanish, French, Polish and other non-European Universities. In 2009 received the Tanturri Foundation Prix for Anthropological and Popular Traditions Studies. She is presently a professor at the University of Molise, Italy.
