6 pagesDate: April 5, 2020


In order to make cities more and more intelligent, there is a need to include cultural heritage among the sectors to be managed, valued and used in smart mode. The enhancement of cultural heritage is one of the 17 sustainable development objectives set out in Agenda 2030, specifically in Objective 11.4, which envisages strengthening efforts to protect and safeguard the world’s cultural and natural heritage in order to promote it intelligently; to develop a digital mode for the use of places of cultural and natural interest, it is essential to system topographic information using smart maps. The intelligences that high-tech technologies make available for sustainable governance in order to safeguard the cultural heritage are a great opportunity for the improvement of the immense Italian patrimony. In particular, the city of Naples preserves within its metropolitan area an ancient center of more than thousand years origin with a developing in primitive age.   For cultural heritage, the use of GIS Systems allows the creation of geo-referenced maps designed to support a comprehensive knowledge system aimed at enhancing and making sustainable use of cultural and natural heritage. In this perspective, a smart map of Ancient City Center and a thematic cartography of the Real Bosco di Capodimonte were created with GIS. In order to promote the use of the natural heritage of the Bosco di Capodimonte, an experimental application of an open Geo-CMS infrastructure has been carried out, which has proved to be a valid tool to enhance and protect, at the same time, the forest resources. Concerning the Ancient City Center, where the cultural heritage of the city of Naples is preserved, as it is characterized by a complex urban evolution measured by the stratified building palimpsest, a GIS map has been built to organize data and information in a scale suitable for reading the architectural/environmental characteristics of the built and green spaces.
