Valorisation of the Latin Arc’s historic and landscape heritage and promotion of the landscape as a community identity element.

Valorisation of the landscape heritage – along with its specific historical and architectural features – between different regions and as a common denominator in the Latin Arc space.


  • First phase: Analysis of a model of integrated promotion and design of the website (www.unesco-med.eu) . Drafting of guidelines for the promotion of UNESCO site in the Latin Arc and the competitiveness of the Latin Arc “territories”.
