Regeneration Strategy on Historic Urban Landscape (HUL) Based on Case Study

The background of this thesis is that Italy’s large cultural heritage overlaps extensively with urban constructions. Research and practice on this issue have achieved successful results and examples worth learning from. This study contains a systematic review of the development process of Italian urban cultural heritage conservation, and a brief description of the historical urban landscape (HUL) concept and method, and the notion of “regeneration” under the premise of inserting “dynamic”, “activation” and “sustainability” in heritage conservation. The research method of this paper is to analyze several successful cases of Italian cultural heritage regeneration, three strategies of Italian landscape heritage regeneration under the HUL theory were summarized: “landscape” layering of urban and historic elements under the strategy of connecting sections; “activating” the historical landscapes using heritage as the catalyst; driving the sustainable use of historic urban landscapes with the power of community. In addition, Facing many problems of Chinese cultural heritage,three important points are provided for the development of HUL regeneration strategies dealing with urban sprawl in China including focusing on the historical and cultural “layering”, establishing a multi-criteria assessment system about heritage and promoting public participation as a long term driving force of urban renovation.
