The aim of “Urbanization and Cultural Landscape” workshops remains focused on understanding changes and transformations of urban contexts and realities in relation with cultural and environmental values. Economic instability, conflicts, globalisation, migrations, climate change, mass tourism, diffusion of technology are rapidly transforming our cities and our living societies. In this scenario, cities are confronting and managing such changes, where culture should play a crucial role. Culture is a main factor to improve capacities which will impact on communities’ development.
