Abstract

Each community, by means of its collective memory and consciousness of its past, is responsible for the identification as well as the management of its heri- tage. Individual elements of this heritage are bearers of many values, which may change in time. The various specific values in the elements characterize the speci- ficity of each heritage. From this process of change, each community develops an awareness and consciousness of a need to look after their own common heritage values. This heritage cannot be defined in a fixed way. One can only define the wav in which the heritage may be identified. Plurality in society entails a great diversity in heritage concepts as conceived by the entire community; therefore the tools and methods developed for appropriate preservation should be adapted to the evolving situations, which are subject to a process of continual change. The par- ticular context of selecting these values requires the preparation of a conservation plan and a series of decisions. These should be codified in a restoration project according to appropriate technical and structural criteria. (The Charter of Krakow 2000)1 I.
