City of Luni, the Mediterranean Exchange of Archaeological Tourism an opportunity to enhance the territory

The City of Luni and the Riviere di Liguria Chamber of Commerce together with Paestum on the occasion of the XXIII edition of the Mediterranean Exchange of Archaeological Tourism (BMTA) in progress in the setting of the Archaeological Park of the province of Salerno.

The presence of Luni at the kermess is part of the territorial enhancement strategy that the administration is implementing. “We are firmly convinced that our territory deserves special attention – comments the mayor Alessandro Silvestri – starting from the Amphitheater and the Archaeological Area, without forgetting the natural context and the food and wine excellences. For this we have decided to do the pandemic period an opportunity to forge synergies with important partners and bring Luni into the spotlight of the media and potential visitors. An effort that we will continue to pursue with the strength of the results obtained ».

«We started from the website – continues the mayor – and from a process of enhancement of all the archaeological heritage in agreement with the Regional Directorate of Museums of Liguria. The Lunense Canal Reclamation Consortium and the Carispezia Foundation have offered us their support. At the same time we joined the Biosphere Reserve of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, obtaining an important recognition from UNESCO. Today we are the first Ligurian municipality in the international Man and Biosphere program».

From the change of the name from Ortonovo to Luni, the administration has therefore pursued an important goal: that of to accelerate the enhancement of the historical, archaeological and environmental heritage of the City of Luni. The results can also be measured simply by taking into consideration the number of people who have visited the Amphitheater in the last few months, or the passages in the media and the attention of the press.
