How to “use” cultural heritage to build cohesion and identity and how to “exploit” it in more innovative ways than we do today, to “make” the economy? What steps need to be taken? “. These are the questions that inspired the HE.CO project.

Cultural heritage represents a dynamic reality, since it is a non-definitive whole, in constant growth. This includes the discovery and continuous acquisition of data and materials, as well as artistic and expressive experiments of our times. This dynamism must follow the continuous updating also of operators, officials and all administrative staff who work mainly in small centers which have to deal with limited resources and often poor visibility. Reactivating an “economy of unexpressed beauty” could generate additional turnover in these municipalities for 1.6 billion euros and generate 30,000 new work units. The web can certainly play a decisive role, offering museums, libraries and even administrations great communication possibilities, provided that a communication strategy is developed that is consistent with the mission of the bodies involved and that make use of all the tools at its disposal, from the website to social channels, to online platforms. If this happens, even a small museum with great ideas can build a very strong digital identity, not only to communicate with its audience, but also to involve it, thus fulfilling its most important mission.

On the occasion of the 2018 European Year dedicated to Cultural Heritage, through the HE.CO project, ANCI Lazio intends to promote a path for museum system operators, local officials and administrators (in particular from small centers), aimed at promoting knowledge and the acquisition of skills and best practices for the enhancement of the vast cultural heritage spread over its territory. Effective valorisation can not only rely on the availability of the “raw material” (tangible, intangible, natural goods), but must provide and work on the issues of economic and management sustainability. This is why programming is important, as it is the development of an integrated, or systemic, use of the cultural, environmental and tourism resources of the territory.

Despite the vast wealth of which Lazio has, this does not always go hand in hand with the knowledge, skills and tools available to those responsible. Other times it happens that such knowledge, skills and tools must be updated and compared with what is done in other geographical contexts with perhaps the same characteristics and / or the same needs. From the analysis of the other geographical contexts we have realized the diversity with which the topic is dealt with in different countries and for this reason the present project was born.

EU PROGRAMME: Programme Europe for Citizens
YEAR: 2018

The more the refugee’s crisis growth the more societies assist to an increase in intolerance and social exclusion feelings. Even though various policies have been adopted at the EU and national levels, incidences of intolerance, discrimination and racism have not shown any significant decrease across Europe. The reason why of such negative feelings from a good share of EU population is mainly attributable to the “emergency” characteristic of the crisis that since the beginning of 2010 did not show relevant reduction signals. As a consequence, the EU Member States, above all those one that mainly are hosting refugees/asylum seekers (Italy, Germany, Spain, etc.) immediately put in place important reception system without paying adequate attention to hosting citizens and their feelings. To this scope, the present project intends to put together EU countries hosting Extra-EU refuges/asylum seekers in order to:

  • Share common and integrated practices addressed to communicate to citizens how their reception systems work;
  • Find common practices aimed at allowing that first line and second line reception and care systems active in EU countries could be opened to societies, allowing contacts with hosted refugees/asylum seekers and hosting citizens;
  • Strengthen social inclusion systems for refugees/asylum seekers asking for the help of volunteering actions directly proposed and thought with hosting citizens;
  • Find common communication channels allowing refugees/asylum seekers to present themselves to the hosting communities;

Produce political recommendations addressed to strengthen social inclusion and better cohabitation, thanks to the input coming from: hosting citizens, hosting municipalities representatives, hosted refugees/asylum seekers, and refugee professionals.
