Abstract

Among all ecosystem services, the cultural ones are those which more dependent on interaction with people. Only people who experiment the ecosystem can get benefits from cultural services, which otherwise remain inactive spreading across the landscape. On strategy to encourage this interaction is to provide a particular area with a slow mobility network, which allows to enjoy the landscape reducing natural impact of personal movements and to perceive all naturalistic and historical peculiarities. This kind of “infrastructure” (suitable for pedestrians, bikes, horses, canoes, etc.) would facilitate the preservation of landscape, historical heritage and local folklore, in addition to attract different kinds of tourism producing new job opportunities. The research regarded Migliarino, San Rossore, Massaciuccoli Natural Park, in Tuscany, where the human activities have been shaping the landscape since the Middle Age and which is not considered by people an asset to care about. The context where it is located ensures that it is more common, and safe, to move through the park by car than by foot or by bike, and this is completely unusual for a natural area as it does not allow to benefit from its presence.
