Abstract

The notion of “maintenance” of buildings has been long influenced by strategic and operational principles derived by the industrial sector. They outline a series of works aimed to intervene on already occurred conditions of malfunction or decay. The evolution of the culture of maintenance drew the attention to the dimension of prediction and prevention and highlighted the procedural characteristics of maintenance and its organizational and economic aspects. The legislation on Cultural Heritage has noted the potential related to a synergistic programming of preventive activities and maintenance. In this sense, the Maintenance Plan, properly integrated in its contents, could be an useful tool for the implementation of scheduled maintenance activities. The current legislation, however, prescribes the redaction of the Plan only in case of intervention, and limits its extension to the designed elements, without introducing the requirement for its effective implementation. The paper analyzes the limits of the current legislation and describes the potential related to the activation of Maintenance Plans as part of the protection strategies for the Cultural Heritage. Some perspectives for the revision of the regulation and the tools governing the drafting and the implementation of the Plan are then proposed.
