New life for Piazza Rossini

Bologna featured in new Cultural Heritage in Action catalogue of good practices!

Alongside 30 others European cities and regions, Bologna is featured in a new catalogue highlighting  innovative practices in cultural heritage on participatory governance, re-use of heritage buildings and quality of interventions on cultural heritage. Bologna's example focuses on Piazza Rossini, transformed from a parking lot to a pedestrian green space thanks to the ROCK project. 

Stories from the catalogue highlight new working methods developed by local and regional authorities with stakeholders. You will also find out that adaptive re-use of heritage buildings is not only for cultural uses and that built heritage areas are increasingly brought back to citizens through new open public spaces. Be inspired by reading more in the complete catalogue.

The catalogue was prepared in the framework of Cultural Heritage in Action, the EU peer-learning programme on cultural heritage for cities and regions, financed by the Creative Europe programme. Cultural Heritage in Action is managed by a consortium led by Eurocities with KEA, ERRIN, Europa Nostra and Architects’ Council of Europe from January 2020 to June 2021.

Forthcoming activities include peer-learning visits open to representatives from local and regional authorities, as well as to relevant stakeholders and representatives from national administrations.
