Abstract

The proposal for safeguarding and urban development comes as a multidisciplinary project; it fits well to an innovative vision on the enhancement of a complex cultural heritage system. The \“case” is the Koya city centre, located in the Kurdistan region. Thanks an agreement with the Koya University, the key topics of the possible work together are: Preservation, Management and Conservation strategies and techniques for a historic centre. The knowledge starts with \“survey” of the present situation, and develops a range of intervention hypotheses and guidelines apt to provide advice for the local stakeholders. The theme has given us the opportunity to think of a possible dialogue between specialists (architect, engineer, planner), starting with the multiple \“actors” in situ. Promoting the old and contemporary identity values of the area is a main feature of the work of safeguarding, aiming at encouraging an urban development based on the conservation of the past, the quality of life and an eco-compatible tourism approach. Keywords: cultural heritage, historic centre, conservation, valorization, Koya, safeguarding, urban development.
