To improve the accessibility of cultural tourism in the cross-border area;

To promote access to information, dissemination and transfer of methodologies and best practices on the restoration of cultural heritage

To strengthen the identity of local communities through the knowledge of the common cultural heritage on the territory

The Departmental Service of Architecture and Heritage of the Alpes de Haute Provence and the Professional Associations of architects, restorers and planners of the Province of Cuneo, have been involved in the project to elaborate a common protocol and a reference system for the restoration of cross-border heritage, to be used as best practices for similar restoration works in the territory.
