VALUE: promotion of archaeological heritage between Italy and Croatia

Second meeting between the partners of the European project funded under the Interreg programme

The second meeting between the partners of VALUE, the European project funded under the Interreg V A Italy-Croatia 2014-20 programme, was held on 11 and 12 December 2019 at the National Archaeological Museum of Adria and the archaeological site of San Basilinio in Ariano in Polesine(Rovigo).

Emilia-Romagna Region participates in the project together with 4 other Italian partners (the Municipality of Comacchio as the leader, the Veneto Region, the Veneto Regional Po Delta Park and the territorial development agency DELTA 2000) and 3 Croatians ((the municipalities of Kastela, Korcula and Cres).

The main purpose of the project, which has a budget of more than two million euros, is to promote a new development model focused on the integration between the cultural, scientific and productive supply chains in the district form of the areas, strengthening its international visibility through actions to enhance existing heritage, promote innovative solutions and develop tourism products with a strong cultural characterisation. All this, starting from the enhancement of well-known cultural and archaeological sites.

This second meeting, which follows the opening meeting held in Comacchio last July, was an opportunity to discuss the overall implementation of the project, presenting the state-of-the-art of all activities and discussing the projects pilot now being defined.

Several pilot actions are planned, to be completed by 2020 and aimed at improving the tourist enjoyment of some important archaeological sites that will also have the opportunity to be tested through the use of new technologies - such as dedicated APP specifications - under development.

These actions involve nine archaeological/cultural sites, four of which are part of UNESCO's Delta Delta MAB and are as follows:

  • creation of "open Air" archaeology in Comacchio (Italy);
  • reconstruction and digitization of part of the Pomposa historical archive in Codigoro (Italy);
  • the experimental reconstruction of a settlement in Adria and archaeological excavations in the Roman and early Christian complex of the archaeological area of San Basilio (Italy);
  • creation of a network of historical routes and paths in the archaeological area of Cres (Croatia);
  • enhancement of the Ostrog archaeological site with the Balvan hill in Kastela (Croatia);
  • reconstruction of a settlement complex in Korcula (Croatia).
