  • Description: This initiative is going to carry out integrated actions to promote and enhance the cultural and historical traditions, and the typical productions of the whole Programme-area, in order to foster the development of tourism and of the other economic resources in the territory. The project aims at drawing an ideal line, in keeping with the tradition of the ancient courts of Europe, and especially of the Serenissima Republic and the Hapsburg imperial court, in a historical context going from the 18th to the 20th century, and characterized by dramatic economic and social changes. The territory under examination, located between Veneto, Friuli Venezia Giulia and Slovenia, is endowed with a very rich historical, naturalistic and architectural heritage. In this regard, the project is going to foster the enhancement of these resources as well as of other economic resources, to increase tourism through a concerted system of communication and promotion, whose core has been detected in the “Empress’s route”. For a virtual tour, please browse through the above-mentioned web site. The cultural relevance of this initiative makes it possible to support the rural development of the partner areas. Wine is a niche product and is therefore the best expression of culture, tradition and history of the whole territory. Centred on the world of wine production, some tourist packages will be devised and will be within their full rights to enter the national and international tourist circuits.
