21-22.09.2019 European Heritage Days 2019

Among the various initiatives organized on the occasion of the European Heritage Days, on September 21st and 22nd 2019, the patrimonial walks were held in Italy, in particular in Veneto, one of the instruments of the Faro Convention.

The patrimonial walks are an initiative promoted since 1991 by the Council of Europe and the European Union, to enhance and encourage exchange and dialogue in the cultural sphere. For a whole weekend in September it was possible for all citizens to access to the cultural heritage of the 50 member countries of the European Heritage Convention, encouraging them to participate actively in its safeguard and transmission to the new generations. Every year a different theme is chosen, which may concern specific aspects of heritage, defined historical periods or the relationship between society and heritage

The theme of the 2019 edition was entitled "One, two, three ... Art! - Culture and entertainment" aiming at the promotion and the condivision of European traditions, contributing to the creation of a european heritage and cultural identity.

These patrimonial walks, proposed by many italian associations and institutions, in particular Venetian, are special thematic routes which, overcoming the traditional modality of the guided tour and interpreting the right to the cultural heritage defined in the Faro Convention, allow the participants to discover and / or rediscover a territory through the eyes and the voices of those who live it, the "witnesses". Made directly by inhabitants, associations and institutions linked to a specific place, the walks favor a deeper understanding of the cultural heritage for the benefit of enhancement and transmission to future generations.

The walks, different from the well-known guided tours, are organized with the coordination of the Venice Office of the Council of Europe, the only office in Italy, in collaboration with the Europe Direct Venice Veneto of the Municipality of Venice.
