Abstract

Cultural heritage, in all his aspects, is considered a particular productive ambit and at the same time it is a capital to preserve forits vocation to represent the values and traditions regarding a specific territory and its inhabitants. For this reason speaking aboutcultural sustainability means have to do with different problems; on the one hand the importance of sustainability related to thenecessity of increasing in value the heritage and understood as attempt to make productive cultural goods, on the other hand theproblem of safeguard and conservation of some goods (in the specific case the valuable historical cities) that, because of theiridentitary particular value, exercise a strong attraction catalyzing a substantial demand of fruition.They represent, in the mediterranean urban survey, a particular resource, where differently from other regions that boast of otherpeculiarities (good urban organization and related organizing/administrative and functional benefits), this resource, (valuablehistorical cities) it isn’t repeatable. Practice and theory, as years go on, have taught that both monuments and quarters, ancientcities and minor historical evidences, do not destroy themselves. These urban parts, nevertheless, cannot be considered specialand independent ambits but they have to be part of the largest urban environment; they are under the quality of their context.This is the main point of this consideration, that is the awareness that a sustainable conservation of these resources gives newvalues of use from and in coherence with the independent values from the use, in a way that the whole value is the highestpossible, with the aim of building a more complete urban quality.
