Recovery and restart between territorial cohesion and protection of freedoms: juridical insights into culture and circulation

The crisis dictated by the pandemic emergency has highlighted the fractures related to territorial inequalities, between local and regional disparities, between urban centers and internal areas, as well as between suburbs and city centers. With the appeal to build more resilient territories, the new season of European and national programs offers the opportunity to balance cohesion policies, also on a legal level.
In this regard, culture, in its material and intangible aspects, can constitute an important driver capable of freeing the potential of marginal territories and enhancing the role of social formations (e.g. heritage communities), including business ones. Furthermore, the pandemic crisis drastically affects the issues of rights connected to freedom of movement, which is now enriched by the potential offered to mobility by technology and by the knowledge regarding the sharing of resources.
