Religious buildings and their appurtenances, land consumption and spending review.

ABSTRACT: In a pluralistic and multi-religious society marked by mass immigration. The territory is transformed and new presences also affect the enjoyment of the rights of religious freedom. In this new context, the places of worship take unusual functions and "utility": they perform the dual task of enabling the exercise of worship and serve as a gathering
place for the community. Particular importance have the liturgical and functional appurtenances of the building of worship which are often called upon to perform functions of social utility. To manage these spaces, public institutions as well as the Confessions, they resort to the instrument of conventions. This study analyzes the legal issues related to the structures of
worship, with reference to those owned by public bodies in the area and those that are part of the patrimony of the Confessions. Because they want to allow the exercise of rights on the territory, public bodies finance these activities under certain conditions and in a manner that, tailored to the Catholic Church, they extend their effectiveness in those with other denominations. The inclusion of church buildings in the area must deal with the limited financial resources of local authorities, intended for the maintenance and construction of them. Spending has to deal with the rational use of resources (spending review) through the review of the relationship between use of land and the use and enjoyment of existing buildings.
