WalkEUR Project: Call for Pilot Actions 2022
6 June 2022
The Atrium Association is calling for proposals from all over Europe - aimed at developing a functional and contemporary design of cataloguing for digital access to ATRIUM cultural heritage. The designed instrument will have to consider the way in which ATRIUM works for the promotion of its heritage which is principally based on the concept of “dissonance”, i.e., the conflicting aspects related to its heritage.
From 24-27 May 2022, the FAB Route international training week will take place in Rimini. The aim is to evaluate the elaborated training methodology on Cultural Routes officers and members, in order to improve their skills in relation to Cultural Heritage Management and sustainable tourism.
On 5-6 May 2022, theEPA Governing Board meets in Luxemburg to discuss among other things the recertification of the ATRIUM Cultural Route. ATRIUM President John Patrick Leech participates in the meeting.
Landscape in a Box is promoted by the ATRIUM Association, created in collaboration with Deina ASP, and supported by the Region Emilia-Romagna and the municipalities of Bertinoro and Cesenatico.
The objective of the project is to explore the complexities of ATRIUM’s dissonant heritage within an approach of co-construction, involving three groups of students from different secondary schools in Forlì, Cesenatico and Bertinoro. This educational experience aims at increasing the student’s ability to critically analyse fascism and understand how architecture was a fundamental instrument of education and propaganda used by the regime. By reinterpreting symbols left in the urban landscape by the Fascist regime, the students created three “Landscapes in a Box” dedicated to specific parts of the ATRIUM heritage.
