The purpose of this article is to examine the role and nature of cultural observatories in a future scenario. Such a scenario is characterised by the complexity of the relationships between culture and development (human and environmentally sustainable), the micro, multiple, emergent and intangible nature of many of the impacts that we are interested in assessing determines a decisive challenge for cultural planning. The perspective of analysis of the economics of culture will be our main tool for this purpose.
