Identificaciones patrimoniales en conflicto: un análisis a partir de tres casos en Cataluña

In recent years, it can be observed an increasing participation of local population in processes of making heritage or “heritagization”, formerly driven from academy or government and, more recently, from civil society. But these processes do not escape from conflicts of interest and often conflicting views on what should be identified as heritage and how these processes should be conducted. The patrimonial processes that affect specific areas of the territory are a good example of it. In this article the authors, researchers at the Catalan Institute for Cultural Heritage Research, present an analysis of the ways in which conflicts arise and are faced in three territories: an urban beach located in the Maresme region, north of Barcelona; a major geographical feature such as the Cabo de Creus situated inside a Natural Park; and, a large rural area in the region of Empordà, in the province of Girona, where is located the archaeological site of Ullastret and that affects several municipalities. With these three cases the authors intend to show the complexity of the conceptualizations of heritage and the conflicts this creates, which ultimately expresses a greater involvement of society towards cultural heritage ​
