1ères DOCTORIALES du Tourisme de la Chaire « Culture, Tourisme, développement » TOURISME / TOURISM Concepts et méthodes à la croisée des disciplines Concepts and methods at the disciplinary crossroads 14-16 septembre 2011 Cultural tourism and spaces in Ravenna: how heritage defines sites, places and territories Elisa Fariselli Spaces defined by tangible and intangible heritage are different: the first is concrete and visible (sites, monuments, cities, museums, objects); the second is invisible but perceivable through the experience of living traditions and interaction with local communities, which often feel their identity to be better represented by some expressions of intangible heritage, as it is the case of the city of Ravenna. Though the distinction between tangible and intangible heritage may be contested, some intangible expressions and manifestations of heritage better represent the feeling of self- consciousness and identity of a community. Heritage as an expression of identity lays on two parallel levels: at regional and local level, some manifestations of heritage are perceived by local community as more representative of the local identity; on the contrary, some examples of heritage, mainly monuments and sites chosen for tourism, are perceived as a national legacy little representative of the local identity . Key words: heritage, identity, intangible, tangible, space I. Introduction When talking about cultural tourism, one of the first pictures visitors figure out is that one of monuments, sites, or sometimes museums.

Introduction When talking about cultural tourism, one of the first pictures visitors figure out is that one of monuments, sites, or sometimes museums.
