In 1947, the Austrian Monuments Authority declared that the town as a whole was a “monument” and measures were taken to preserve it. Years later, protective instruments for the conservation of urban and village ensembles were established in many European cities. These processes take place in response to rapid structural change, urban redevelopment processes or destruction. The lasting effect of these phenomena on the development of cities is evident when looking back at historical processes, such as the reconstruction after the WW2.

This interdisciplinary conference seeks to understand how historical processes of urban transformation interact with society, planning and heritage conservation, and what insights can be drawn from them for current developments. It will focus on the historical processes of evaluation, selection and planning of the historic building stock and the accompanying discourses of different actors. It also examines the impact of planning and conservation decisions on the built and social structure of cities.

«La natura, riprendendo a sé i materiali sottratti dall’uomo, opera armonicamente, così da lasciare ai ruderi una possibilità di ricostruzione ideale. Da ciò il fascino e la bellezza delle ruine. Il restauratore che ne limita la forma […] impone al monumento e all’osservatore una sua opinione personale tanto più sgradevole quanto più la natura aveva aggiunto alle ruine il bisbiglio dei ricordi indefiniti che essa sola conosce»
