ATRIUM Association

To promote and manage the ATRIUM Cultural Route, the ATRIUM Association was founded in June 2013 by the partner of the ATRIUM project (2011-2013), financed under the South East Europe programme. The project highlighted a key element of 20th-century European history: the cultural heritage and memory associated with totalitarian regimes and their particular architectural legacy. The main result of the cooperation between the partners was to bring together different experiences in order to discover shared historical elements.


Main objectives

  • disseminating knowledge, protecting and promoting the European heritage (both tangible and intangible) associated with the architecture and history of the 20th century, with special focus on periods marked by dictatorial and totalitarian regimes in Europe
  • coordinating the local European itineraries of the architecture of totalitarian regimes of the 20th century within the framework of a single ATRIUM transnational route
  • carrying out activities aimed at fostering research, knowledge and enhancement of the cultural and architectural sites and itineraries in cooperation with universities and research centres
  • promoting a cultural tourism which enhances a critical historical and aesthetic appreciation of the dissonant heritage, able to promote the values of the Council of Europe
