A comparison of the Unesco Convention and the European Landscape Convention revealed a substantial difference in landscape interpretation. The fi rst document gives priority to a vision of landscape as the exception compared to a neutral background. The European Landscape Convention perceives the landscape as complete surroundings. Unesco’s definition uses the established practice of ‘compositional operations’ and ‘communication models’, while the European Landscape Convention definition requires a closer operational investigation, already observable in artistic experiences initially and architectural experiences subsequently. The key question is therefore to understand which new methods this extended horizon of the term ‘landscape’ brings to architectural, restoration and conversion practices, especially in those areas that are inevitably evolving.
