The project plays an important role in managing the continuous balance between conservation and transformation; it is a tool of urban regeneration and active protection of the abandoned industrial heritage. The theoretical reflection is sustained by the identification of methodologies and design strategies, illustrated through emblematic projects that have been able to reactivate a new life-cycle for places and buildings, by preserving the values that have been verified through the analysis and criticism, creating a new identity through the renewal of the functional program and the insertion of innovative elements. Projects of various scales that have regenerated and revitalized abandoned sites working on the quality of the built space and on the uses, shaping them into ‘patrimoine vivant’.
