Abstract (in English)

In an increasing globalization and urbanization of the world, the future of man strictly depends on the future of town and the conditions of life of mankind depend on the capability to govern and to manage the town. The cultural heritage can play a considerable role in the strategies of humanization of the urban development and open new perspectives of research and integration between man and town, towards a more human policy of life and future, finally based upon the balance between tangible and intangible values. This delicate transformation process requires basic factors such as widespread education, public education, the know-how, specialized technical training, and regulation of professional practice. The principles and the culture of conservation should become an integral part of the training of “conservation” and “restoration” experts. They should also be able to create the political awareness and technical expertise which are crucial to ensure the protection of our cultural heritage. Therefore, only the balance between public and private actions can guarantee the conservation of the cultural heritage for the benefit of the community. As a consequence, a real policy for cultural heritage, supported by participation and aware consensus of the various levels of the population, is today the central instrument to guarantee the social, cultural and economic development of countries.
