Today, cultural tourism is one of the fastest growing segments of tourism worldwide, not just in Europe. At the same time, in today’s Europe, cultural heritage is a strategic resource for the development of sustainable tourism. In fact, heritage resources are long-term goods that generate values, thus contributing to the development of competences, skills and economic growth, all by promoting tourism. Culture is also a tool for generating important social (through the active participation of people) and economic benefits (through tourism revenues), both inside and outside the European Union. At the same time, cultural heritage projects have often turned into examples and good practices of tourism activities, with an innovative social and economic impact in Europe
