EHTTA makes a splash at the European Parliament in Strasbourg
MEPS from Italy, France, Greece, United Kingdom, Czech Republic, Croatia or Portugal, among others, attended last 15th September a meeting at the European Parliament in Strasbourg where the European Historic Thermal Towns (EHTTA) had the opportunity to present its work as a Cultural Route certified by the Council of Europe. The international non-profit association introduced its latest project, the Thermal Atlas; a ambitious initiative on the study of European thermal culture developed by EHTTA Scientific Committee. EHTTA President, Giuseppe Bellandi, said: “The Atlas can become the the best available database about European thermal heritage and a prime source of information, easily available for the general public”.
The event was hosted by the MEP Francisco Millán Mon , co-President of the European Parliament Intergroup “European Tourism Development, Cultural Heritage, Ways of St. James and other European Cultural Routes”, and MEP Silvia Costa, President of the European Parliament Committee on Culture and Education. The Council of Europe was also represented through the Director of the European Institute of Cultural Routes, Mr. Stefano Dominioni.
