Rationale

Area typically in the center of cities with historic buildings and often with touristic facilities. Usually with shops/amenities at street level and residential use upstairs. It isn't for singular features such as *a* church, *a* museum, but wider areas that in the biggest cases have some kilometers of diameter.

For historic centers there is this page on italian wikipedia Centro Storico with some pictures.

Tags

This proposal introduces a single *new* key and value pair:

* landuse=historic_center

Existing tags could probably be used to add information, for example:

* name=

Rendering

It depends from style of other features.
