Enjeux publics et privés du réinvestissement des espaces historiques centraux, une étude comparée de Gênes, Valparaiso et Liverpool

Abstract : Genoa, Valparaiso and Liverpool are three city-ports whose public actors have chosen to overcome urban crisis by the reinvestment of historical urban centres (urban spaces as well as the historical waterfront), through heritage policies and urban programs. Using the comparison as a methodology, this study analyses urban regulations through urban coalitions and processes of legitimization. Urban events are a way to make them appear. Moreover, urban transformations have an impact on practices, and result in gentrification in the three cities, regarded as a residential process as well as a commercial and tourist one. Nevertheless, those changes produce conflicts that rely on the principles of urban transformations. Those principles reflect an urban spatiality, that also appear in the way urban heritage is taken into account. So this study show the coherence between urban regulations, legitimization and the process of heritage building. The notion of “urban figure” enables to study those links between urban regulations and urban imaginaries, at different scales.
