The European Heritage Days are one of the most extensive initiatives on the continent intended to preserve and to promote the artistic, the historical and the cultural patrimony of the European countries, aiming, at the same time, to sensitize the public to the importance and beauty of the nations’ cultural diversity. Italy has been recently included in this festival, which is no surprise, given the overwhelming historical heritage of the country.

In order to make Italy’s participation possible, plenty of institutions and institutes have contributed to the initiative (such as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ministry of Education and Research). But regardless of the efforts made by the authorities in organizing the festival, what matters is the European Heritage Days are an occasion not to be missed out by the large public to get to know or to rediscover, as the case may be, the unparalleled patrimony of Italy, and or Rome in particular. On this occasion, locals (and, of course, tourists) are welcomed to visits plenty of museums, historical and archeological sites and art galleries for free, as well as to attend sundry meetings and participate to guided theme tours in order to learn, once again, the specificity of their culture and the historical roots of what now stands out as the monumental Italian culture.
