cultured/cultivated landscape
Explanation:
Cultured/cultivated (vedi Webster) "dotato di cultura" riferito a persone oppure "coltivato" se riferito appunto a terreno o terra. Mi sembra che qui vada bene; non si puo' tradurre "sapiente" letteralmente come se il paesaggio fosse una persona.

Difficult, very difficult choice.
Guess what? In the translation I handed in I opted for 'sage'.
I received your answer after this.
However do the adjectives you proposed fit in for a landscape that reflects past times?

more context needed


Explanation:
It's pretty hard to give a translation for two words from a poem without seeing how it has to fit in with what's around them. Could you post a few lines?

Hi Pietra


Explanation:
Hi Pietra,
the reason why I suggested \"cultivated/cultured\" is that they can be applied both to people and landscapes, whereas \"sage\" cannot. Also \"sage\" suggests wisdom rather than layers of culture and human intervention.
In any case, buon lavoro
