The European Landscape Convention is the first legal instrument concerning directly the landscape theme and its quality in a supranational way. The Convention's innovating element regards the recognition of the landscape as a common heritage. The Convention establishes that every citizen has the right and the duty to participate in the landscape’s safeguard. For almost twenty years, there has been a particular kind of museums for which landscape is the key factor. Ecomuseums respond to the need to implement conscious behaviour of land use. The work of eco- museums for the safeguarding of the landscape will be illustrated. The purpose is to demonstrate how these structures work under the principles expressed by the European Landscape Convention.
