Resilience and sustainability for the reuse of cultural heritage

Daniela Besana, Alessandro Greco, Marco Morandotti


The contribution analyses the themes related to the concept of resilience, as an indispensable premise for a conscious intervention of reuse, conservation and enhancement. The cultural heritage is analysed in relation to three main factors: the environmental context, its knowledge and the users’ needs. The essay proposes a first methodological interpretation, apt to define some synthetic indicators through which evaluate the degree of accessibility, transformability and adaptability of the heritage, for its sustainable reuse. The principle goal is to provide a forecast of the transformative impacts that the project could trigger on the architectural heritage.
