This book is a theoretical and ethnographic contribution to the study of cultural and natural heritage in rural areas. Different authors describe processes of patrimonialization and uses of heritage within the context of policies designed to protect natural spaces. The papers analyse initiatives to revitalize or recreate elements of local culture and rural heritage via the creation of museums, festivals, craftwork, or natural food. The book includes three theoretical papers and twelve case studies based in the South of Europe (Italy, France, Spain and Portugal).
