The Heritage Project 

Goals: Contribute to the cataloging, enhancement, promotion and correct management of cultural heritage  

The main "Heritage" project is developed through the following thematic sub-projects:

H1) Sicily Heritage Project 

The Sicily Heritage Project has as its main objective to contribute to the Cataloging, Enhancement and Promotion of the Sicilian Cultural Heritage in all its forms from the tangible one (historical-artistic cultural heritage, landscape and natural heritage) to the intangible one (tradition, folklore, art, food and wine, typical crafts). The project was born from an idea of Ignazio Caloggero which established the first Heritage Archive in 1995 (First Generation) and in its current version (Fifth Generation), constitutes the first "GeoSocial" Cultural Archive, multi-thematic and territorial, containing the assets of the Material Cultural Heritage (historical-artistic cultural heritage, landscape and natural heritage) and Intangible (tradition, folklore, art, food and wine, typical crafts) of Sicily and Malta . At the moment about 6.000 assets and places of cultural tourist interest have been cataloged and geolocated, we expect to reach 8.000 by 2021 and 10.000 assets by 2022.
