Modern heritage has been on the agenda of preservation policies since the 1980s, gaining strength in the 1990s. Despite many advances, the time barrier remains a challenge to think about the practices and the meaning of this heritage for contemporary times. Intervention, authenticity and authorship are themes that need to be discussed in order to carry out preservation policies and practices that contemplate modern and contemporary heritage in its complexity and in an inclusive way. For the future and the heritage of future generations, it will be increasingly important to consider the agendas of local identity, social participation and sustainability, questioning the “authorized heritage discourses”.
