Project Description


Project description

The project Archeo.S – System of the Archaeological Sites of the Adriatic Sea, experimented a new model to enhance  cultural heritage sites by producing studies and researches and organizing shows, events, conferences, and workshops of dance, music and theatre so as to favor a more sustainable development. The specific objectives of the project were linked to the experimentation of an innovative method through the establishment of a “system” capable of setting up and networking functional relations between cultural heritage and cultural operators, thus allowing to develop and pursue a long-term strategy meant to hold project’s results steady in the community. The specific objectives were: a) testing an innovative method to enhance cultural heritage sites as attractive tourist destinations in a view to strengthening sustainable development; b) organization of a cooperative “system” across the cultural heritage sites involved to put in place and implement a long-term strategy by subscribing to a Memorandum of Understanding; c) increasing the number and the quality of long-lasting opportunities of cooperation in the field of live arts in the Adriatic area.

The project objectives have been pursued by means of the following actions:

– creation of a Network of Cultural Heritage Sites;

– working out of a Governance Plan for Cultural Heritage Sites;

– organization of art workshops, vocational training courses, master classes;

– realization of  theatrical productions;

Which are the project main results/impacts?


The Network allowed the transfer of skills and know-how of each partner country, the development of partnerships at public, private, local and cross-national levels as well as the practical testing of new methodological approaches in the governance of cultural heritage sites. In particular, the Network was intended to: a) promote, improve and deploy the potential of the cultural heritage sites; b) improve accessibility to the sites in question; c) expand the range of services and cultural activities provided by the sites.


The Governance Plan represented a practical testing of new methodological approaches in the governance of cultural sites.
