Sustainability and cultural heritage in the field of architecture serve to guarantee continuity and the development of values that shape architectural cultures in their particular historical, geographical and societal contexts. We look at Italy, a region that has one of the richest legacies of architectural history. What are the current practices of cultural heritage in contemporary Italian architecture? Five protagonists of Italian architectural culture present their views on understanding the role of cultural heritage as an influential transformative practice, in contrast to a duty of conservation.
