Abstract (in English)

To discuss the conservation of the Saint Sebastian Fortress on the Island of Mozambique we can focus on three problematics. The first one deals with cultural identity and the Mozambique’s policies for architectural heritage inherited from the colonial period. The second issue has to do with the ability to keep in good condition and to practice common maintenance of historical monuments of great dimensions, as the fortresses of the Early Modern World. The third theme refers to the fortress reuse through new non-military functions.
