The activities of the project Archeo.S. are getting to the heart of the matter. In fact, the first of the two Round Tables (aimed at the creation of a new model of «governance» for the cultural heritage) was held on Tuesday 29th of May. The meeting was organized by the consortium Teatro Pubblico Pugliese (lead partner of Archeo.S. project) in collaboration with the Regional Directorate of Apulia for Cultural Heritage and Landscape and the archdiocese of Bari-Bitonto, the Round Table was the occasion to create a moment of comparison among main institutions, entrepreneur delegates and operators. The objective was to analyze policies, tools and good practices in order to build in an “involved” way the elaboration of a governace plan able to define efficient innovative strategies and management models.
The Round Table was launched by Silvia Godelli (the Regional Councillor for the Mediterranean, Culture and Tourism) that highlighted how culture is «necessary to raise again after difficulties and attacks deriving both because of nature and because of the man’s hand». A specific recall was made about the earthquake in Emilia and the attack to the school Morvillo-Falcone in Brindisi that has shaken Italy, in these weeks. «These attacks – Ms Godelli continued - do not need only money and attention, but also to look over it. These request a new way to look at the future and to culture. The cross-border cooperation, most of all, addresses a project, to the pre-adherent countries, in which our region has always believed. I am strongly convinced that a very important changeover would be those to invest in culture, as it is a universal language and perceptible by all, and also it represents an impulse for the economic growth. The Artistic Seasons - concluded – added in this project represent, in a very clear way, a new model of governance collectively activated by the partners and the local bodies adhering to Archeo.S., as the language of arts let to cultural heritage to live again a new life and let to countries divided from a small strip of sea to be united in a common project».
