Press Release: ATRIUM recertified, two new entries
ATRIUM has been recertified as an official Cultural Route of the Council of Europe. On 18 April, the Governing Board of EPA-Enlarged Partial Agreement meeting was held, which also assessed the three-year recertification dossier of ATRIUM Route. A special thanks to Patrick Leech for representing the ATRIUM Route on this important occasion.
The satisfaction for the results obtained is greatly increased by the entry of two new Italian cities in the Route, Carboniaand Merano, whose application for admission was accepted on May 30, during a special skype conference of the ATRIUM partners.

Forlì on Rai Storia

The Cambridge Heritage Research Group hosts the 19th Annual Cambridge Heritage Research Symposium, which will be hold on 11-12 May 2018.

The ATRIUM Plus project funded by the European Cross-Border Cooperation Programme "Italy-Croatia" has formally started on 1st January 2018. Lead partner is the Municipality of Forlì (I). Other partners are the cities of Bari and Ferrara (I) and Labin (HR), as well as the University of Zadar (HR). As three of the partners are members of the ATRIUM Cultural Route, the Route as such will be fully involved in the implementation of the project activities.
ATRIUM Plus objectives are really simple and concrete:
- create an ATRIUM cultural-tourist product addressed to schools by involving students themselves in its tuning - perform training sessions primarily addressed to tourist guides on the ATRIUM themes and its difficult storytelling - set up and produce ad-hoc ATRIUM signposting for the Route sites and buildings
