Abstract (in English)

The contemporary understanding of cultural heritage is broadening its horizons: it now includes not only traditional archaeological or architectural monuments, but also all evidence of material goods and intangible assets, which are the true expression of the historical, social and cultural background of the society that has generated them. Acceptance of these fundamental principles of UNESCO and of international Charters and Conventions is leading to a new concept of preservation and value enhancement, highlighting the need for careful investigation of the territory and its resources; the Management Plan is its operational tool. This article provides three examples of the way this plan can be implemented, referring to Italian WH sites: a) an archaeological site: Barumini (Sardinia); b) an urban site: S. Gimignano (Tuscany); c) a cluster of sites: Val di Noto (Sicily);
