A sustainable management of tourism within heritage sites should start with comprehensive planning and design to provide an equilibrium between locals and visitors, and to keep our cities inclusive, resilient, safe and sustainable. Extending the space of the cities to include the adjacent rural territories provides even greater sustainability through urban-rural linkages.
Integrative planning and design are followed by construction of sustainable visitation models through heritage interpretation and presentation and by adequate communication strategies.
We need to plan for the community and then evaluate how we manage the visitors...
The conference is an interdisciplinary platform to address the emerging conflict between ‘overtourism’ and the safeguarding of natural and cultural landscape, historic cities, monuments and sites, especially those listed as World Heritage.
The aim is to engage, on a regular basis, academics, researchers and practitioners in the fields of architecture, urban and spatial planning, the protection of natural and cultural sites, cultural tourism, presentation and interpretation of heritage, museology, sociology, anthropology, cultural theories, communication science and economy.
The latest academic, scientific, and field research, strategies, techniques and tools will get the opportunity to be compared, challenged and revised – and then to be spread, as good practices for the benefit of both opposing aspects – the prosperity of local communities that are linked to tourism economy and the safeguarding of cultural tangible and intangible heritage.
