Territorial and environmental problems, ever more delicate and dramatic in our country, require, now more than ever, the constant presence of the geologist in all the social, cultural, economic and territorial contexts. It is necessary to act with greater authority, and involve the society, making the public aware of the real status of the land: how the territory can be both a source of risk or a resource. Knowledge is the key tool: the diffusion of scientific heritage, using topics well known and appreciated, more accessible to the public, may represent one of the new goals for the communication and consciousness raising of natural disasters. Landscape is made of geological settings: it is the result of the endogenous and exogenous processes moulding the Earth’s surface. So it can be used as a vector of geological information. There is an obvious need for a new approach to the problems related to the complex context that now shows us a planet going beyond the critical point. A holistic approach is imperative to study the planet, a method that considers environmental and social ecosystem on the whole, providing all policy makers with a realistic view of the situation and the possible developments.
