The research analyses six case studies in both Campania and France. The cases of the Region focus on its World Heritage properties, which are Caserta, Naples, Pompeii, Amalfi, Cilento and Benevento (within the network Italia Langobardorum). The case studies in France analyze issues and examples of success among the emblematic sites of the French heritage included in the World Heritage list as well as the Grand Sites de France network. These are: Montpellier, the Loire Valley, Saint Guilhem le Désert et Gorges de l'Hérault, Pont du Gard, the site and Archeological European Centreof Bibracte, and the Seine in Paris. The study is part of an international perspective due to the author believing that the analysis of best practices in different territorial contexts could suggest proposals and strategies to be adopted in Campania. Thus, Alessandro tries to understand whether positive outcomes in the field of heritage management, in specific regions of France, cannot only be adapted to the cultural, social and economic contexts of Campania but also supported by the main territorial stakeholders. He meaningfully highlighted the phases of the project that put in relation, in a logic of system, the patrimony of Humanity with the ordinary, minor and intangible heritage of the territory of reference.

The fourth edition of the six month series of seminars (January – June 2015)
entitled Preservation and Development in Large Cities: An International Perspective was an extraordinary success, as the previous editions of 2012 (first), 2013 (second) and 2014 (third). It involved 70 participants including professors, researchers, post-doctorate fellows, graduate students and students of partner institutions, who have all received a joint participation certificate. The series was organized by the Centre of Competence of the Campania Region on Cultural Heritage, Ecology and Economics (BENECON, institutional partner of Forum UNESCO University and Heritage), the Department of Architecture and Industrial Design Luigi Vanvitelli of the Second University of Naples, and Edward J . Blustein School of Planning and Public Policy, the Center for Urban Policy Research at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey. The professors and researchers from BENECON and the Department drew up several papers in relation to their specific subject areas, in a logic of integrating their skills and confronting “without limits” which characterizes the methodological approach of our scientific community, with Italian and American case studies on design, architecture and landscape.

The management of the contemporary aspects and problems of historical heritage, the preservation of cultural memory, are necessary activities that concern and cut across a variety of different disciplines, whose complexities are evident as long as they require a specific definition of the identity of the architecture.

The second edition of the seminar series in 2013 called the Development and Preservation in Large Cities: An International Perspective organised by the Department of Architecture and Industrial Design Luigi Vanvitelli of the Second University of Naples, the Regional Centre of Expertise on Culture, Ecology and Economy (BENECON) – an institutional member of Forum UNESCO University and Heritage – and the Edward J. Blustein School of Planning and Public Policy at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, as for the first edition in 2012, has been an extraordinary success, with 56 participants including professors and lecturers, research fellows as well as doctorate and graduate students and students from partner institutions, which have all received a joint participation certificate.

This class considered the subject of development and preservation in large cities and examined this interaction from an international perspective, considering case studies in the United States (with an emphasis on New York City) and Italy (discussion of Naples, Pompeii and larger Campania region). New York City has some of the leading cases in the United States of development triumphing over preservation (e.g., demolition of Penn Central Station) as well as opposite situations (e.g., preservation of Grand Central Station). The same is true in Italy, including Naples and the larger Campania region.
