In Italy, the management of the historic, artistic, cultural and landscape heritage and the issues related to its conservation and sustainability are an increasingly urgent issue to discuss, especially in light of the economic crisis of recent years. The policy, in the past, has focused mainly on large restorations, neglecting investments in conservation, an improved accessibility to the heritage, the dissemination of good practices for the protection and maintenance of the same, the enhancement of the landscape. Moreover, to make matters worse, the continuous risk of deterioration, caused by environmental conditions of the context in which the assets are located, and the lack of appropriate forms of prevention of natural disasters, make the situation even more critical. This study, through the literature and comparison of certain urban realities - Italian and European - aims to present a path towards active citizenship, in which underutilized public spaces and abandoned buildings are transformed, redeveloped and requalified. Virtuous examples of planning, protection, and enhancement achieved through collaboration among the different social actors, public and private, where the application ofgood management practices, conservation and development of the historic, cultural and landscape heritage has produced well-being to the community and has increased the economic development and tourism to the city.
