In the context of the project “Historic Urban Landscape – Bridging Cultures” (HUL-BriC), promoted by CNR-ICVBC, Rome and WHITRAP-UNESCO, Shanghai, Lazio Innova, partner of the Agreement, organized a meeting in Rome with WHITRAP on 8th February 2018 to discuss the relationship between culture and development in small cities. The meeting aimed to identify and compare Italian and international best practices relative to the positive impact regional museum-systems have in promoting better development synergies and territorial rootedness. 

WHITRAP mission to Rome, carried out by Anna-Paola Pola and Simone Ricca, took place in the framework of the Memorandum of Understanding signed in 2013 with the Italian Centre of Scientific Research (CNR) and focused on the preparation of the new summer HUL training workshop scheduled from 26 August to 3 September 2018 in the small city of Cave, near Rome. 

The summer training, which builds upon the previous successful seminars and courses held in Shanghai and Palestrina in 2017, aims to offer to the Asian and Italian participants a highly qualified and interdisciplinary experience focusing on cultural valorisation and networking of small historic cities for economic and social development.

The training aims to connect the Italian expertise in enhancement of historical urban sites and landscapes, with innovative start-ups and small entrepreneurship experiences based on cultural resources, traditional arts and crafts, high and low technologies. It will be concluded by one-day seminar in Rome organized by Lazio Innova.
