Historic cities are subject of transformation aiming their development all around the globe. The rehabilitation of Plaza Garibaldi is an example which main objective is the one to revert the process of decay in the public space of an emblematic historic district. Plaza Garibaldi has a strong touristic potentiality due to its traditions based on the public space dynamics. This paper analyses the urban intervention according to the historic urban landscape approach. It emphasizes the identification of local cultural resources as the main challenges in the elaboration of urban interventions, especially, when these do not correspond to global standards of development. The purpose of this paper is to illustrate the importance of democratic participation of local communities for elaborating interventions of cultural significance. It also shows the validity of the HULA for the safeguarding of the authenticity and local cultural diversity in historic urban areas.
