A brief description of the activities:
With interactive professional guidance and artistic vision, the host partner presented the most important points of the cultural heritage of Rieti, the navel of Italy, regarding cultural tourism. The Secondary School in Rieti presented to us a direct example of the integration and social inclusion of youth in this process. We also learned about typical products from local companies, the best wines and food of the Sabine region.
In relation between the leading and the host partner, we received some important information in the interactive lecture on how to establish cultural tourism and how to create a common European identity, while maintaining one’s own identity with accepting and admiring diversity. At the public event we presented the Project Heart of Europe, HE-ART, and signed a Memorandum on Permanent and Sustainable Cooperation, which was translated into the languages of all partners. We have also accepted the approximate plan for permanent project activities and the strategy for project expansion.
