Italy, as is well known, is endowed with the largest cultural heritage in the world,
located not only in large cities but throughout the territory. Frequently, therefore,
local development projects pursue the objective of increasing tourism through the
enhancement of the cultural heritage of the territory, mostly little known, but often
of undisputed historical and artistic quality. The limit that is generally found in
Italian local development projects is in the organization of the implementation of
actions to promote the growth of the territory, which often see the public part play
a dominant but self-referential role. This work aims to propose a governance
model that provides for the structured organization of the public part and the active
and broad participation of private partnerships; the model was developed through
the principles of horizontal subsidiarity and social responsibility expressed in art.
