An Integrated and Sustainable Approach to the Management of Minor Historic Centres: Territorial Cultural Systems

  • Josefina López GaldeanoEmail author
Part of the Springer Geography book series (SPRINGERGEOGR)


This chapter first starts with an analysis of the current scenario in the field of minor historic centre management which has gone from a context of substantial production of culture’s public strategies and available funds to a situation of cutting programmes and investments; as a result, this field requires new innovative approaches and tools. Secondly, the chapter will focus on an innovative approach which defines culture as a fundamental pillar for sustainable development and, therefore, on the setting up of a new planning and management model based on culture and sustainability. Finally the chapter will formulate a first definition of the model of territorial cultural systems.
