Starting for the statement within the discourse on heritage formation that not everything is heritage not will end up acquiring the status of heritage, but anything has the potential to become heritage, in my presentation I am interested in identifying the mechanisms involved in the process of creation of "heritage" when particularly dealing with material assets of the communist past. One central problem to be presented is how historical assets are negotiated and assessed as culturally valuable and they are being incorporated, perceived and preserved as components of the national cultural heritage. Since of the amount of material present from the communist past is enormous, I will focus my presentation on two particular sites of the historic interest, namely the civic centre in Bucharest, the Victory of Socialism with a focus on the House of the People and the collections of the former museum of the Communist Party in Romania.
