The protection of historic property: how far should it go?
April 19 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pmFree
Please join us for a special Caffè & Cultura with Betina Schlossberg.
Both Italy and the U.S. have laws regarding historic preservation of buildings, aiming at protecting their historic heritage. In both countries building permitting occurs mostly at the local levels and conditions may be imposed on use of the property in the case public funds were received for its restoration or maintenance. In spite of these similarities, differences are considerable.
We will discuss the differences and similarities between the protection of historical property in both countries. Is there too much or too little protection? Should the rights of the owners be above the interest of the country in preserving the property or vice versa? What legal basis are used? What could the right balance be?
