Tuesday, 26 October 2021 18:18

In the first months of 2021 the area of the Po Delta and Venice, together with the Island of Ventotene were chosen with five other candidates to represent Italy at the European Commission with the aim of achieving a European Heritage Label. The ministry for tourism commission chose the theme "Lands of water, lands in the water, Po Delta and Venice.”


Heritage as a lever for territorial growth

The aim of the Interreg Italy-Croatia VALUE project is to make natural and cultural heritage a lever for sustainable and more balanced territorial development. The Po Delta Veneto Regional Park Authority, which is a partner of the project alongside local players aims at developing a new tourism product integrating archaeology, history and nature.


A VALUE project for Adria’s Archaeological Museum 

The fulcrum of this offer is the National Archaeological Museum of Adria in San Basilio, an ancient post station on the Via Popilia.  The excavation area has been reopened thanks to the funding of the VALUE project, and is located in the nature park which is part of the international network of UNESCO MAB Biosphere Reserves. 



 “Our Park - explains Moreno Gasparini, President of the Veneto Regional Park of the Po Delta, UNESCO MaB Biosphere Reserve – is once again promoting a network project to obtain an important international recognition. In 2015 UNESCO recognized our territory as belonging to the world network of Biosphere Reserves, and now the park authority is leading the candidacy for the European Heritage Label."
