Abstract

Urban creativity is a hard challenge, because it doesn’t need rules or models, but adaptive protocolsapplicable in different local contexts, able to mount resources, capacity building and creativeenvironments. It challenges us to find local features that could provide good practices to be turned intomethodologies or components to forge new urban and human regeneration tools, based on the culturalarmature and citizens engagement. We live in a Creative Land composed by generative cities, a widepalimpsest of innovation labs, as experimented by several worldwide networks supporting what’svariously termed social enterprise, community interest companies, impact economy, organizations thataim to create positive social impact through enterprise. The Creative Land could be seen as a spatialnetwork of social catalysts, and creative cities are living organisms. Culture is more than the tangiblepart of sustainable development through the heritage or the intangible part through the creativity, but it’sthe collective intelligence that puts in connection tangible heritage and intangible identities, culturalinfrastructures and creative economies, historical sites’ conservation and urban innovation. So, aneffective creative urban agenda asks for practical actions, all grounded in local contexts and formulatedand implemented through a collaborative approach, and a panel of initiatives that could act as the betatesters of the new creative-driven paradigm of sustainable development.
