Monument – Patrimony – Heritage. Industrial Heritage and the Horizons of Terminology
If “Sharing Heritage” is to be taken seriously, then it must have consequences for the
assessment of value – in Europe, but also beyond: in place of the more exclusionary
“World Heritage”, which tends to foreground each country’s own, often nationallydefined achievements and merits, we should strive toward the creation of a “Global Heritage”, one capable of building bridges on the basis of universal values, thereby bringing the world’s people closer together as a global community with a common destiny.
