Project title:

Coming to Grips with Diverse Voices in Participatory Heritage Initiatives


Community participation is increasingly advocated as a promising approach to cultural heritage management. One of the main aims of doing so is to challenge the authorised heritage discourse and further multivocality. However, regarding the notion of “community participation”, many issues are yet to be investigated. First, are the voices in a community univocal at all? Does community participation guarantee a more diverse vision of heritage discourse? This project explores these questions through investigating various cases from two Italian areas - Mesagne and Latiano from the southern Italian region of Apulia, and the neighbourhood of Testaccio in the historic centre of Rome.
