A Survey of Interesting Practices in the Country

  • Pierangela LoconteEmail author
Part of the Springer Geography book series (SPRINGERGEOGR)


The aim of the chapter is to describe some parts of the Italian experience that are considered particularly significant related to the enhancement of cultural and the environment heritage, in particular, small historic centers. Specifically we focus on the possible role of public authorities and private individuals regarding this issue. For this reason, we will examine in depth some case studies presented by proposals for public initiative through the use of specific regulations; proposals for participatory public/private initiative and, finally, proposals for a voluntary private initiative.
