Concerning the protection of the ancient city wall, it should be based on the preservation of the ancient buildings. Moreover it also should combine the buildings together with their surrounding environments, then plan and re-use reasonably. In Europe or other countries around the world, this method is rather mature in terms of repairing the ancient city walls themselves or re-use the other buildings, like Italy.

Therefore, regarding the repair procedure of the Zhao Qing ancient city walls in China, this is a really good example for referring. Taken into consideration of the examples of protections for buildings in foreign counties and preserving the ancient buildings which possess traditional Chinese characteristics, we should think how to combine the city wall and people’s living together in terms of taking into account the functionalities and necessities and exploring the maximum value of the ancient city wall.
