L'interprétation du patrimoine, un facteur de construction territoriale ? L'exemple du schéma d'interprétation du territoire du parc naturel régional du Queyras

Abstract : Heritage interpretation is an educational activity that rose up in the USA’s national parks during the first middle half of the 20th century. This study asks if nowadays heritage interpretation can contribute to the territorial construction. As it is impossible to think about interpretation without thinking about heritage and territory, the study first interrogates these two notions and shows that they’re both social and cultural constructions. An investigation specially conducted during the study with artisans and mayors of the Queyras regional natural park has become known that in this place of the French southern Alps, heritage is today first defined as proposed by the french anthropologist I. Chiva that is to say, “rural cultural heritage”. Based on crossing geography and economy, the study reveals that two main factors influence territorial construction: actors’ coordination and resources’ revelation. So, conditions that allow heritage interpretation to include these two factors are discussed: first the indispensable connection between tourism and interpretation, secondly the importance of scientific research, thought in a multidisciplinary way. The importance of fully considering human local communities is also highlighted. Finally, the study shows that when heritage interpretation totally integrates these conditions, so then can it become a territorial construction factor. This result could be interesting for the Queyras regional natural park to deploy the heritage interpretation plan according to the current charter.
