Archaeological cultural heritage, tourism and territorial development: conflicts, strategies, solutions and management

The role of Roman Roads as axes of decongestion

II ROMAN ROADS SEMINAR

Gijón (Spain) 3 and 4 October 2024
Conference hall of the Centro de Cultura 'Antiguo Instituto'

II ROMAN ROADS SEMINAR

The Roman Heritage Cooperation Network – ITER ROMANUM, is a collaborative project focusing on European cultural heritage, aimed at promoting and disseminating Roman roads and Roman heritage managed, protected and studied by the partners of this association. In order to achieve its objectives, different activities are yearly organized, including specialized workshops. In September 2021, the first seminar took place in Braga (Portugal), with a broader topic, "Roman Roads in Europe" and addressing issues such as research approaches to Roman roads and territories, strategies for the promotion of cultural routes, and associativity around European cultural routes.

This second edition, to be held in Gijón (Asturias, Spain) in October 2024, focuses on three complementary topics: the role of cultural and archaeological heritage as a resource for tourism and development; the (positive and negative) impacts of this phenomenon on the territory and, finally, its effects on local communities.

Drawing mainly on several round tables, this II Roman Roads Seminar will encourage exchange and discussion on these issues through an international and interdisciplinary panel of speakers.
