UNESCO recognizes values of Cuba’s Heritage Village

Camagüey, Cuba, Feb 1 (Prensa Latina) On the 510th birthday of one of the most patrimonial Villas of Cuba, UNESCO today recognizes its bastions, crucial in the cultural evolution of the region.

The celebrations for the Week of Culture of the city at the beginning of February are marked by the celebration of the International Symposium Challenges in the Management and Management of Cities.

Anne Lemaistre, director of the Regional Office of Culture for Cuba, the Dominican Republic and Haiti, referred on the opening day of the event to the responsibility of the Cuban school in terms of preservation.

With nine World Heritage Sites and five Historic Centers recognized by UNESCO itself, ‘Cuba is an example that is much talked about on a global scale in this task because it values heritage beyond the commercial or tourist aspects, but rather impacts every action with a social purpose’, she said.

He pointed out that ‘the restoration is directed farther away from the lucrative, you see a restoration of a building for an elementary school as well as for a local elderly, or designed for young people, and it is precisely this premise the challenge’.

Unesco’s intentions in terms of cultural policies will exploit new business models and entrepreneurs, he stated.

He also referred to the recommendations of projects for historic urban landscapes and ‘linking the Historic Center with the peripheries, seeking precisely that the people feel represented, with changes that also give us a lively dynamic with the use of ecological technologies’.

On its opening day, the Symposium served as a stage to highlight the three Creative Cities that seek cultural diversity, in a network that includes Havana, Santiago de Cuba and Trinidad in Cuba, although Camagüey aspires in the future to become one of these cities under the profile of Literary Creative City.
