On 3 July the ERRIN network and the Representation of the European Region Tyrol-South Tyrol-Trentino will organise in Brussels two events dedicated to the enhancement of the World Wars cultural heritage, on the occasion of the European Year of Cultural Heritage.

During the morning the event organised by ERRIN in collaboration with the Liaison Office of the Province of Trento and other members will take place at the House of European History. The title of the event is “The Road from War to Peace, More Democracy and European Integration. War Architecture, Sites and Memories as Part of European Heritage and History”. The event will address political as well as educational aspects of memories and memorial sites and explore the role of war memories for our common European History and European Identity. It will be an occasion to present and exchange good practices to enhance the cultural heritage at regional level. The Museo Storico Italiano della Guerra of Rovereto will take part to the event.

The moderator of the panels will be Luisa Chiodi, director of “Osservatorio Balcani e Caucaso Transeuropa” of Trento.

In the afternoon, at the Office of the Representation of the European Region Tyrol-South Tyrol-Trentino it will be organised the workshop “The Cultural Heritage of War in Contemporary Europe: EU Programmes and European Cooperation”. The event is part of the common agenda of the Representation. The representatives of the European Commission will provide an overview of the relevant European financing programmes with regard to the support and enhancement of cultural heritage and will present some examples of previously funded projects. The participants will then have the opportunity to exchange experiences, network and discuss potential collaborations.
