Il testo affronta due delle cause che sono alla base degli esiti delle politiche di conservazione dei centri storici attuate in Cina negli ultimi trent’anni: l’insufficiente specificità della pianificazione del recupero a fronte della pianificazione generale e la sua dipendenza dalle dinamiche del mercato immobiliare. Gli aspetti rilevanti connessi a queste due questioni sono presentati in prospettiva storica, sul filo dell’evoluzione del quadro politico, economico e disciplinare e con riferimento ad alcune esperienze rilevanti.

Keywords: Identità urbana; politica urbana; modernizzazione vs conservazione; centro storico; rinnovamento urbano.
