Abstract (in English)

The importance of the Agenda 2030 will be analysed through the 16+1 SDG’s (that represent a vision about the desirable future of humanity in the XXI century) and through the New Urban Agenda. These SDG’s can be implemented in the territory/ city systems. The New Urban Agenda recognizes in the article 124 culture as a “priority component of urban plans and strategies”, thus representing the entrance point of culture into SDGs (where it is substantially ignored). The New Urban Agenda can open the perspective of new humanistic/ ecological paradigm based on critical thinking, holistic approach, relationship between human beings and between human beings and ecosystems. How can we pass from principles to actions? Which tools regarding in particular the implementation of UNESCO Historic Urban Landscape Approach? The paper will propose a new original set of indicators and evaluation tools for improving conservation/ development choices. Cultural Heritage is interpreted as a good example of commons that evokes a community that is able to identify management/ organizational rules founded on self-organization and self-government. The principle of subsidiarity is assumed as a starting point for implementing innovative public private social partnership. At the same time, this commons approach suggests new forms of economy: cooperative economy, solidarity economy, social economy and, more in general, circular economy.
