Italian laws concerning cultural assets allow the State to entrust its cultural heritage properties to private citizens or organizations, in order to reduce the management costs. In the last ten years, many heritage public buildings have been granted to private use in return for payment or for free. This trend is fostering autonomous action of citizens and non-profit organisations. In accordance to the principle of subsidiarity enshrined in the Italian Constitution (Article 118), people care for and manage abandoned public assets, considered as common goods. This trend is consistent with the aims of European Policy Area “Cultures and Citizens”, that sees culture to the heart of European integration. Some municipalities have signed cooperation agreements with citizens in order to support and promote recovery and management of public real estate, through bottom-up processes able to increase inclusion and social cohesion. In order to build partnership able to accomplish goals of effective safeguard and enhancement, with positive effects in terms of welfare and local development, the research defines a new management model, based on stakeholders’ consultation and cooperation.
