This book will try to elucidate the economic dimensions and potential of our cultural heritage, the management methods used by those who hold ownership rights or the right of use of cultural properties and define the future grounds for state intervention. This book will describe the services it renders to households and enterprieses, to regions and societies, in order to determine its economic value.
