Puglia, presented a bill to help municipalities buy historic properties


09/07/2021 – To finance the purchase by the Municipalities of private properties of historical and artistic interest.

This is the objective of a regional law proposal presented in Puglia by the regional councilor Antonio Gabellone (FdI) for promote urban regeneration by increasing usability on the part of the citizens of these significant elements of the identity of the territory in its relations with the traditions and historical events of Puglia.

“The enhancement of cultural heritage – says Gabellone – first of all presupposes their protection, which lies in their recognition, conservation, protection and restoration. Physically preserving cultural heritage is certainly the first step, but the possibility of fruition must certainly not be missing of these artistic assets “.

“There are still many sites of great historical and cultural value that are abandoned to themselves and require a worthy restoration and proper enhancement. Villas, abbeys, abandoned gardens and other places that have great potential seem to have been forgotten ”.

“Unfortunately, the Italian state – adds the councilor – is among the European countries that allocates less funds for culture and the result is that numerous historic buildings that could be restored and brought back to life remain uninhabitable and abandoned. In addition, the budget of the Ministry of Cultural Heritage allocates fewer and fewer resources to the Municipalities which are also bound by the Stability Pact.

The regional law proposal I presented – concludes Gabellone – is therefore aimed at promoting the purchase by the Municipalities of buildings and protected assets of private property and then promoting the interventions of conservation, recovery, refurbishment and requalification through national, European and international investments and financing”.
