Valorisation is one of the two functions used by institutions in the transmission of cultural heritage in Italy. While valorisation is a polysemic concept with an uncertain use and wide-ranging implications, the relationships that have been forged between protection, management, realisation, and valorisation are the subject of a controversy that is in conflict with both scholars and the two different aims of social life: social and cultural progress and economic growth. Through a critical approach and from a sociological perspective, this article shows how these two dimensions are in a conflict that touches both the social purposes attributed to cultural heritage and the cultural process through which heritage is produced.

Abstract

Valorisation is one of the two functions used by institutions in the transmission of cultural heritage in Italy. While valorisation is a polysemic concept with an uncertain use and wide-ranging implications, the relationships that have been forged between protection, management, realisation, and valorisation are the subject of a controversy that is in conflict with both scholars and the two different aims of social life: social and cultural progress and economic growth. Through a critical approach and from a sociological perspective, this article shows how these two dimensions are in a conflict that touches both the social purposes attributed to cultural heritage and the cultural process through which heritage is produced.
