The  ROCK  project  sees  historic  city  centres  as  laboratories  to  demonstrate  how  Cultural  Heritage  can  be  an engine  of  regeneration, sustainable  development  and  economic  growth.  ROCK  approach  foresees  the  systemic  and flexible application of a series of role-model practices in the testing sites of three Replicator cities, to turn historic city centres afflicted by physical decay, social conflicts and poor life quality into Creative and Sustainable  Districts.
This book, edited by UNIBO, highlights the major result of the ROCK project: it includes essays, practices descriptions, reflections from the project as well as a series of lessons learned from the ROCK cities and tools.
It is part of the CPCL Series, published in Open Access by TU Delft Open Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment, Delft University of Technology.
