Book | Fall and rise: Heritage reconstruction after war

This publication is the result of the international seminar organized in Gernika and Bilbao from October 1 to 3, 2015.

How can a society that has been devastated by war be rebuilt? How is a town capable of rebuilding itself after the greatest deflagration it has ever experienced? And in that reconstruction, what is old and what is new? What is it that drags on, and how do you live with that hard memory?

This book aims to highlight the gray episodes, often unknown, of the reconstruction of cities and their heritage after years of endless wars.

The purpose is to reveal that the reconstruction of the cultural heritage that follows the war conflict goes beyond the mere restoration of monuments and the rebuilding of cities.
