Culture & Cultural Heritage, Cultural Tourism
Conservation of people’s cultural diversity as nurturing ground of ideas to interpret the present and build the future. Through extensive experience we developed an internal know-how covering the conservation of cultural heritage as well as its linkage with the living culture. We see Culture as a chapter of the development theory and as a specific theme of development action.
Field of expertise:
- Cultural heritage conservation
- Development of cultural and creative industry (arts and forms of expression)
- Study of culture-based value systems and value change
Conservation of cultural heritage has been one of our main fields of activity.
In particular ARS Progetti have developed and applied an integrated approach to conser vation, which includes the areas of interpretation, recording and classification, conservation strictu sensu, presentation, exhibition, education and development of the economic and social potential. We have successfully developed community involvement and public and private sector collaborative framework in various countries. Our experience also includes projects for preservation, restoration and development of new forms of utilisation of the built heritage (buildings historic sites archaeological area).
Material or tangible heritage: monuments, historic building and sites, historic towns, archeological areas, landscape; objects and works of art.
Non-material or intangible heritage: folklore and traditional performing arts (theatre, music, dance); traditional handicraft, traditional food, oral traditions, poetry.
Our experience in the area of Cultural Heritage and Cultural Activities has brought us to deal with Cultural Tourism in various parts of the world.
