Starting with an observation of a vast number of players, and a marked lack in the cultural heritage sector of a specific implementation plan to identify operational protocols and guidelines based on shared models, this paper aims to present the development of an open source software platform with the feature that it contains detailed information always updated and shareable concerning both the state of preservation of the buildings and the restriction and planning requirements situation of the frames of reference on which these assets stand on, for a complete valorisation of cultural heritage. This platform offers a tool designed to disseminate, as widely as possible, the data indispensable for promoting a more informed and active protection and valorisation policy of cultural heritage, both by administrators and those who in different ways operate in the cultural heritage sector. It also supplies integrated knowledge of the heritage asset and its context so that it becomes a factor of cultural, social and economic growth of the territorial system in which it is located. The methodological approach described, of the systemic kind, has allowed testing in two different contexts, the Regions of Lazio and Calabria, an operational model defined in an innovative setting for the preventive conservation and documentation of the architectural cultural heritage, to aid in the decision process for planning and regenerating landscapes and cultural sites.
