This study evaluates the lesson learned of the management plan regarding the conservation and development of Naples Historic town based on the ‘Historic Urban Landscape’ approach. Remarkably, the result has shown that the strategy of local action plan is outstandingly successful. In other words, the value of the area of historic centre of Naples is well connected with the natural-physical context of the Naples bay supervised by the City Council of Naples, and the Port Authority of Naples respectively. Moreover, the mechanics of cooperation with the European exchange and learning programme promoting sustainable urban development (URBACT) is successfully implemented in promoting an academic realm and the strategic planning.
Considerably, those types and mechanics driving projects can be categorised into 3 groups; 1) projects organised by local authority, 2) projects supervised under the network of international cooperation, 3) projects cooperated between government and private units. Apparently, all these groups will be collaborated altogether to generate the greatest achievements.
