European Heritage Days 2015

On Saturday, September 19 and Sunday, September 20 the European Heritage Days (EHDs) will be celebrated also in our country.  This event was launched in 1991 by the European Council  to encourage the dialogue and cultural exchange among the European countries.


The fundamental goal of these Days is to inform European citizens of the cultural wealth and diversity of Europe by creating an ideal climate for favoring more tolerance that reaches beyond borders, but another important focus is informing the public at large of the necessity to protect the cultural and historic heritage that distinguishes this part of the world from the rest.


For the occasion, the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Tourism will take part by involving all of the state owned sites, including archives and libraries, with reduced admission fees and longer opening hours which will be established for each institute.


On the evening of Saturday, September 19, at the participating sites, there will also be an extraordinary opening from 8pm to midnight, along with the other events on schedule over the two days of this initiative.


But also participating in this event are many non-state run cultural sites including civic museums, municipalities, galleries, foundations and private associations.


The fact that this year the EHDs coincide with the Expo offers an excellent opportunity to structure the events, the extraordinary openings, experimental guided tours and the many initiatives around a theme, that of food, which has always been closely linked to cultural values and the historic and artistic identity of Italy.


Many events for this festival will also be held in Emilia Romagna with extraordinary openings, presentations and meetings, exhibitions, conventions, guided tours, special itineraries and shows.
