A PROJECT PROMOTED BY THE UNIVERSITY OF TERAMO, ORGANIZED BY THE ASSOCIATION ABRUZZO A PIEDE LIBERO.
Slow tourism, as an innovative sustainability practice, is a formidable tool for historical, artistic and cultural heritage promotion. On the one hand, it stimulates people to visit territories in a careful and responsible way and, on the other hand, it raises awareness among resident communities towards a more complete activation of local resources. Paths are a typical expression of it with the intrinsic ability to attract a more aware and sustainable tourism for the affected communities. In Abruzzo we can find several examples: il Cammino dei Briganti, il Cammino di San Tommaso, il Cammino delle terre mutate, il Cammino dei Parchi.
Il Cammino dâ€™Abruzzo, a project of the association Abruzzo a Piede Libero, is a wider experience: it covers the entire Abruzzo territory with a path of about 700 Km.
Tax Law Chair of Faculty of Law â€“ University of Teramo, already holder of a national research project about public finance and taxation of cultural heritage, has chosen it as a model of study and deepening.

Although the Constitutional Charter requires the protection and promotion of landscape and cultural heritage (art. 9), the lack of public funds is sadly known. It is not only a national problem, but a European one. In the Italian experience thereâ€™s a lack of fiscal and public finance policies which guarantee a systematic financing to the cultural sector. We can find only sporadic and emergency interventions. Starting from criticalities, the research project has the objective to analyze the most important and relevant international experiences. The project aims to prepare concrete proposal for action in order to ensure sufficient resources for the promotion and the protection of cultural heritage.
