Recently, a large-scale documentary series of “Culture in The Spring and Autumn Period-Shaoxing” was broadcast. As the only city representative in Zhejiang, Shaoxing stood out among 142 state-level historical and cultural cities and became one of the 10 target cities for filming and broadcasting in the first season.

Focusing on the historical features of Shaoxing city, this program vividly shows the high-quality development of historical and cultural city protection in the new era, and fully reflects the new vitality and charm of Shaoxing’s historical and cultural heritage in the new journey of urban and rural construction.

At the opening ceremony of the documentary, Shi Huifang, deputy secretary of the Shaoxing Municipal Party Committee and mayor, introduced Shaoxing, the ancient capital of Dynasties Yue and Song, the water city in the south of the Yangtze River and the hometown of celebrities, to the global audience through video connection.

Shaoxing, the first batch of national historical and cultural cities, has remained unchanged for more than 2,500 years. It is “a museum without walls” and was successfully elected as “the cultural capital of East Asia” in 2021. In recent years, based on the principle of “authenticity of history, integrity of style and continuity of life”, Shaoxing has cleaned the foundation, trimmed the clutter, eliminated the residual rot, consolidated the stone pillars, paved the bluestone, adjusted the rhyme, laid the “flat bricks”, left a “blank” and opened the vein. Shaoxing is marching towards the future and the world along the history.

Shaoxing has continuously activated and utilized historical and cultural resources and promulgated the Regulations on the Protection and Utilization of Shaoxing Ancient City to solve the contradiction between historical and cultural heritage and modern urban development. It benchmarks the world cultural heritage standards, optimizes the functional layout of the ancient city, continuously promotes functional disintegration, texture and style restoration, infrastructure upgrading, cultural and business travel implantation, creates an “ancient city project cluster”, forms a pattern of “one city, one bridge and three hometowns”, and explores a set of ancient city protection and utilization mode suitable for its own needs.
