Abstract

Models of revitalisation and enhancement of cultural heritage were studied through the Heritage Urbanism approach. A total of 17 models were identified and divided into three groups: Universal Heritage Models, Basic Heritage Models, and Thematic Models of the Heritage Approach. Appropriate models that can enhance and modernise heritage and preserve its identity features were chosen from these groups. In terms of dealing with heritage, the following models may be differentiated: conservation models, development models and models of use. Cultural heritage management is becoming a model to connect public, institutional, local and all users. Potential models for the enhancement and revitalisation of urban heritage and landscape heritage were studied. The study and identification of these models was based on multidisciplinary research and a multitude of selected case studies. The aim was to determine universal models which could contribute to finding sustainable and lasting new use for heritage. The research was based on the following hypotheses: heritage is not a burden but a potential for development and a strategic national resource; it is not sufficient to protect and conserve heritage, it must also be renewed and interpreted in a sustainable manner that will provide it with new life; heritage is a current challenge which can be resolved through its inclusion into the contemporary and future life of towns, settlements and communities; heritage is not to be perceived as a static object, but as a creative subject.
