One of the key concepts in ROCK Project is to consider Cultural Heritage not merely as a spot presence in the city of highly cultivated and celebrated urban facts

but to recognize as CH, constantly, the best achievements in cities' transformation processes, switching from a passive idea of CH to an active and generative vision. This implies to assume our European historical cities not as a frozen world to be preserved and, consequently, at constant risk of damage but as a vital lesson and, consequently, as a built environment that can and must be constantly actualized. This first consideration leads to a second one, that is the decision not to treat CH as a merely financial problem but to take in consideration CH as a welfare problem, a constant acknowledgment effort of city as a common good, in its permanencies and in its transformations, in a constant flow of preservation and innovation, of memorial and creative practices, a process per se capable of improvements in social economy.
