Abstract (in English)

This paper will present the rapid and profound changes of cultural heritage and landscape throughout the past and present days, especially the loss of spirit of tangible and intangible heritage on the North Adriatic coast. In spite of the fact that archaeologists became aware that they have a responsibility to be sensitive to intangible heritage too, because cultural heritage without any intangible aspects does not exist. In early seventies of the last Century “touristification” in the region around Portoro lead to the destruction and abandonment of many cultural sites and connected intangible culture not only from ancient times but also from medieval and especially those from the beginning of the 20th. Forty years ago the concept of sustainability development of cultural heritage values was very weakly developed, the evaluation of cultural heritage was in the beginning and there was no public influence and awareness.
