How to become a member

Full Members

The Cooperation Network of the Heritage of Roman Roads, Iter Romanum, is open to new partnerships, in addition to those currently entitled to full membership.

Selection

Towns/Cities

  • Towns having a Roman heritage related to a secondary Roman road.
  • Towns having a Roman heritage located in rural and/or outlying areas and that are object of study by this cultural route.
  • Towns should preferably be of medium to small size. A population of 200,000 is the limit the network considers when referring to a medium-sized town. This limit is flexible, so a more populated city may be admitted to the Network if so approved by the Scientific Committee.
  • Towns that don’t belong to an association which is already a member of the Cooperation Network of the Heritage of Roman Roads.

Entities with competencies in heritage conservation and dissemination. (Museums, foundations, institutes)

  • These entities must be located in towns that comply with the previously described requirements.

Municipal associations.

  • Their aim must be the cultural and touristic promotion of a Roman road
