Edinburgh — the capital city of Scotland, political and economic heart of the Country, largest financial center in the UK and second largest tourist destination — represents a paradigmatic case of urban development and regeneration based on the concept of an extended historical core. In the Scottish capital, long-term investments in the historic fabric constitute the basis for a regeneration process supported by both public and private sectors, through an integrated action focused on both existing architectural and urban structures as well as new constructions.
