Values and effects of local identity preservation. A taxonomic approach
AbstractThis paper is positioned at the crossroads of three scientific disciplines: economics, planning and cultural heritage preservation. It aims to present a general framework for local identity analysis and historic environment preservation within the context of a more comprehensive urban ecological planning paradigm. Based on the notion of sustainable development, a taxonomic approach is designed with a view to the creation of an evaluation framework that addresses historic entity, public and private values, public and private action strategies, and impacts on various relevant social groups. Due attention is given to three sources of value: the intrinsic values of cultural goods, the potential of cultural goods for local or regional development, and the needs and the willingness of the local community concerned.
