Abstract

The themes of recovery, restoration and safeguarding of the artistic, architectural and landscape heritage of our country, since several years have been addressed in different areas like technical research, legislation, manufacturing techniques, and is debated in national and international context. Despite the very important contributions from these areas, the missing ring in the chain, often, is the vision of the economic management of the future reuse of the buildings and of the environmental sustainability. The costs of these operations are so challenging that only a clear prediction of the "future economic capacity" of the restored object it can encourage the restoration. Here we show an emblematic case history, where studies and works, are planned for the restoration of the entire area of the Visconti Castle in Trezzo sull’Adda. The topic is that the "start-up" of the process has been developed both in parallel with cultural aspects and social-economic studies on the entire area where the town of Trezzo, for historical and geographical reasons, has a prominent position. The results of these documented studies and the undoubtedly propositional attitudes of the Municipal leaders have pushed this administration to undertake and finalize the restoration of the castle, with the purpose to create facilities for the entire area social re-use by the population and to stimulate, a sustainable development.
