The paper focuses on the implications and relationships between the preservation of cultural heritage and the improvement of individual's lives and the environment through the description of a case study on a experimentation, in a municipality of the metropolitan city of Reggio Calabria. In recent years, literature on urban features and living conditions of cities related to health and well- being, has shown growing attention to the implications that the cultural dimension has or can have in these processes. The attention concerns the cultural expression understood as a set of environmental and social features, that is, a set of characteristics associated with a specific place, urban or territorial, of human and social development. Today, the relationship between culture and health, obtains an important role. Indeed, a considerable interest growth in sector studies, which unequivocally demonstrate how the smart use of free time is associated to an extension of life expectancy and a reduction of some pathologies. The project presented pursues both aims of safeguarding and enhancing the heritage values of the landscape and supporting the construction of new visions and interpretations by local populations and more generally by all users of this place.
