Several authors claim that the first heritage institutions were created for the first time in Africa during colonization. I am looking for references that affirm the opposite. Studies attesting that there already existed in Africa an extra-family heritage, common to nations and peoples, but also that its was institutionalized and organized before the colonial period.

The Diocletian’s palace in Split is known to receive management decisions, which have represented the developing process of heritage management world wide. From stylistic restoration and demolition of postantique structures that didn't belong the the Roman Period, until Riegl's ideas to keep buildings that contributed to the image and harmony of the site.
Is there any other significant example elsewhere that shows the debate or conflict between the domination of historicitized image of a heritage site in a town, and the advocacy of layered-historical complexity?

Answer
You can look at the Classic city of Bosra (Dera'a district-Syria), where the local population settled on the antique ruins were displaced to better enhanced the cultural heritage and follow the preservation sheme according to UNESCO. The site inscription goes back to 1980, when less care was given to add local population and local economy to the cultural heritage's sites management. But the same, even more radical, cleaning-up can be seen actually in the 2015 UNESCO site of Amida-Diyarbakır, where the inner buffer zone was nationalized and the majority of the "modern" buildings destroyed. We will see what will be done on the antique substract, or what remain of it.

(¿Cual es el principal patrimonio industrial en el mundo? ¿Y en su país? ¿Qué sitios o elementos son reconocidos en su país? Cuáles no?)
"Industrial heritage consists of the remains of industrial culture which are of historical, technological, social, architectural or scientific value. These remains consist of buildings and machinery, workshops, mills and factories, mines and sites for processing and refining, warehouses and stores, places where energy is generated, transmitted and used, transport and all its infrastructure, as well as places used for social activities related to industry such as housing, religious worship or education". (Nizhny Tagil Charter, TICCIH, 2003)

Answer
My answer is that TICCIH publishes reports every three years on the state of industrial heritage in each country where there is a TICCIH section. Some of these are on the TICCIH website (for 2015 and I think 2013) and for others you can always ask TICCIH how to obtain copies.
These report will go a very long way to answering your query Ronaldo.
