Abstract

For imagining another world in an uncertain future, we also need a new past. Cultural heritage can be a tool to frame this new past in a more real and more substantive way. The scholarly critical perspective developed since the 1960s for the study of the past defined cultural heritage as a form of use of the past in the present. With this point of view, it may be possible to challenge and eventually change power relations in environments where the use of cultural heritage contradicts with the official heritage practices and definitions. The Aurora district in Turin is a significant case to confirm this suggestion, because when we look at the traces of Aurora's urban memory, we see that the spatial and social movements have always posed a threat to power structures. The unauthorized heritage management schemes we see in today’s Aurora is the result of this urban memory. By investigating such unauthorized heritagization processes and studying urban memory in these areas, it is possible not only to design and construct another world, but also to reveal another more real past.
