Abstract

The paper analyses the multi-stakeholder urban landscape regeneration occurred in Or-tigia (Siracusa). With the founding in 1997 of a Faculty of Architecture, here, local au-thorities and cultural heritage entrepreneurship establish operational and cultural syn-ergies aimed at preserving and enhancing heritage. Over the course of twenty years, some important restoration and enhancement activities promote a domino effect on the urban landscape and community, triggered by the circularization of economy on the territory. In attempting to give heritage a new life, these projects promote new qualities for interventions, searching for an equilibrium between preservation on the one hand, and dynamic approaches to reuse and management on the other. Starting from the lessons learned in Ortigia, the paper outlines quality performance in-dicators within multi stakeholder heritage-led regeneration processes. The changes in the historic urban landscape performances over time will be related to the community empowerment process within the asset regeneration and management.
