Veneto and Venice: new visions of Culture

di Elisa Barbierato

The relationship between culture and territory is the subject of an increasing interest. Today, culture is widely recognized as a key asset for economic and social development and competitiveness. At the same time, we live in a period characterized by a worldwide economic crisis in which the unique possible solution seems to be “re-starting” and “re-inventing” everything. In this scenario, the point is whether the solution can come from our immense cultural heritage.

Qualità di vita e orizzonti culturali della Terraferma veneziana

di Elettra Chiereghin

La Terraferma veneziana, negli ultimi decenni, è stata protagonista di numerosi investimenti in riqualificazione, volti a ridisegnarne l’assetto architettonico, urbanistico, ambientale e culturale. Ancora una volta, la cultura è riuscita a farsi strada fra i programmi elaborati dai pianificatori ed è stata posta al centro di specifici interventi. L’indagine pilota “Qualità di vita e orizzonti culturali della Terraferma veneziana”, al centro del presente contributo, nasce con la volontà di esplorare la percezione locale di una serie di fenomeni.

City and “cultural capital” – Città e “capitale culturale”

di Giovanna Segre

In the search for greater and better well-being for a society, an objective that economic science explicitly sets itself, while proposing recipes of varying success, an important role for culture emerges today. The idea emerges that, in the commitment to find other parameters to accompany the traditional gross domestic product (GDP) to measure not only material well-being but also intangible, one can usefully include the reference to “cultural capital”. This concept was introduced in the economic literature by David Throsby in 2001 to highlight how culture plays an important role for a qualitative superior socio-economic development of a territory, a big area, a circumscribed or urban center. In cultural capital coexist the tangible dimension of culture, consisting of works of art, artistic artefacts, museums, monuments and buildings of artistic and architectural value, for which the asset value is quite evident, and the intangible one deriving from the set of ideas of attitudes, symbols, beliefs, habits and customs, common or shared values and traditions of a society or group belonging to it.

Capitale sociale, imprenditorialità locale e governance territoriale: il circuito turistico Cortes Apertas/Autunno in Barbagia come politica di sviluppo locale

di Clementina Casula

Il contributo difende la validità dello sviluppo locale, paradigma che riconosce anche alle aree marginali la possibilità di realizzare percorsi di sviluppo virtuoso radicati nel territorio e integrati in circuiti globali. Per conseguire tale obiettivo, a partire da un caso di studio realizzato in Sardegna, appare cruciale che gli orizzonti di azione degli attori socio-economici coinvolti nelle politiche di sviluppo locale si allunghino e si amplino, per consentire l’attivazione di processi di apprendimento collettivo che informino l’intero sistema locale.

Does culture deserve public funds? – La cultura merita i fondi pubblici?

di Michele Trimarchi

The relationship between cultural activities and public funds is subject to an endless torment. As always, the hosts settle on opposite sides and to frighten the opponents adopt doomsday arguments. The most used adjective is ‘right’, which should find little citizenship in a system permeated by expressive freedom, project intuition, relational richness. Until the spectrum of Benedetto Croce continues to hover over Italian cultural things (and perhaps also European) we end up turning a technical question into an ethical dilemma. Exploring the varied case studies of cultural projects carried out with a variable combination of own and derived revenues, mostly from public sources, we begin to see the coordinates of paths not necessarily linear, and often fragile in the logical plant. The overabundance of public funds at all levels of government (starting from that of the European Union and ending on the municipal) has been over the years counterbalanced by the byzantine obsession to issue erga omnes banns, in order to dodge the charge of intelligence with the enemy. The effect has been to superimpose and contrast the map of formalities to the map of concrete actions, letting aseptic protocols and opaque negotiations coexist peacefully, doors full of stamps with the star and clogged corridors of winking relationships and agreeing agreements.
