Cultural Heritage Protection - the cases of sustainable tourism and of reproduction of works of art


Speaker: Professor Sara Landini, University of Florence

The term Cultural Heritage commonly indicates the legacy of physical artifacts and intangible attributes of a group or of the society that are inherited from past generations, maintained in the present and preserved for the benefit of future generations. Cultural heritage includes tangible goods (such as buildings, monuments, books, works of art, and artifacts), intangible goods (such as folklore, traditions, language, and knowledge), and natural heritage (including culturally significant landscape, environment like particular kinds of trees…).

Cultural heritage is a part of the study of human history because it provides a concrete basis for ideas, and can validate them. Its preservation demonstrates a recognition of the necessity of the past and of the things that tell its story.

Social institutions, scientific knowledge and technological applications need to use a "heritage" as a "resource". Ethics considers that what had been inherited should not be consumed, but should be handed over, possibly enriched, for the benefit of future generations.

The exploitation of resources and economic growth may negatively impact the conservation of cultural heritage.

In this seminar Professor Sara Landini will consider some Italian examples with regard to: sustainability and mass tourism and intellectual property (for example reproductions of works of art). We will propose cases, problems, adopted solutions stimulating a debate.
