Abstract (in English)

In the most important art cities, two main conditions indicate the complexity of the management of cultural sites. The first one refers to the co-existence of stratified culture places (in other words the historical-artistic goods) and those hosting the city main activity (for instance, the political and administrative one hosted in the historical building). As a consequence, there's need to make possible the circulation of persons and material goods. The second one refers to the necessity to have available huge innovative forms of financial and human resources to assign to the conservation and protection of the historical-artistic heritage. Due to these considerations, in Italy it is still difficult to define a strategic planning of intervention for the valorization of spread historical and cultural heritage. The paper aims at proposing some methodological disciplinary considerations that could address the study approach of sustainable planning of spread cultural heritage in historical cities. Some case study refer to ongoing experiences that could be useful to propose policies and strategies of intervention for the assessment and evaluation of cultural goods, and for the definition of shared scenarios of land use planning and for sustainable models of local development.
