The intangible reading and valorisation of the cultural heritage is often put aside by the tourism models due to the considered supremacy of the physical built environment of the site. In this work, a theoretical framework is proposed and described, which aims to investigate the role of the intangible patrimony under the scope of place-making. The proposed framework has a two-stage application plan that is based on the historic city's musical tradition presented by Information and Communication Technologies (ICT). To better illustrate the practical implementation of the theoretical framework, its application plan on the Mediterranean Greek island of Corfu is described. The first methodological step focuses on the value of the extended community participation in local music, while the second methodological step examines how ICT, and more specifically location-based services, mobile computing, and Augmented Reality (AR) can serve these goals and facilitate content delivery.
