The Creative City

Cultural policies and urban regeneration between conservation and development


Alessia Usai

This book focuses on the relationships between the creative city principles and the planning approach introduced by the European Landscape Convention in order to identify best practices for the development of innovative cultural policies and new urban regeneration tools.

The research is characterized by a cross-cutting approach to cultural heritage. It proposes a new model for the design of advanced cultural districts consisting of a benchmark methodology and a "toolbox" of spatial, economic and social indicators that can be used to build the necessary knowledge. Finally, having Sardinia Region (IT) as reference, the book offers a picture of programs and plans to which the methodology and the toolbox can be applied, outlining their potential impacts within cultural and spatial planning.

A First Application

A Shared Methodology for the Management of Cultural Heritage in Sardinia Region (IT)

After clarifying the contents and the possible uses, now we try to highlight the potentials and the limits of the methodology illustrated in chapter 6.

In the following paragraphs we compare the analytic techniques of the methodology to those currently used in the draft of integrated landscapes projects. In particular, we focus on the landscape projects carried out by Italian regions which do not have advanced cultural districts but which are provided with advanced planning tools for cultural heritage and landscape.

In Italy the Sardinia region (IT) has committed itself to the creation of cultural districts financing, between 2004 and 2008, a feasibility study and approving a specific law on the matter. This has given the start to a reform of the regional cultural policies. However, the election of a new regional council in 2009 overrode the start of the cultural districts, which remained on paper.
