In central-eastern Sardinia two land management techniques in particular have characterised the landscape: terraced cultivation and the use of fire (swidden system). Even today, despite the abandonment of farming for almost half a century, it is clear that these techniques modified and shaped the land, however, in the long term this system has shown its limits. We currently see how the abandonment of terracing and the use of the swidden system over centuries can contribute to environmental imbalances and, in particular, to the hydro-geological instability of the soil.
