Open Air Museums: an economic resource

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


Landscape protection has long been an integral part of Italy's legislation on Heritage and Cultural Property. However, lack of funding means that we have to elaborate the feasibility of a "cultural enterprise". The article examines the concept of a "landscape enterprise", analyzing the specific case of open air museums, here seen as the mean to ideally join landscape and art in a unitary context. Finally, the article sees, as a future evolution of open air museums, the progressive attitude to consider certain territories and landscapes as a sort of trade mark, thus emphasizing their economical, as well as cultural value.
