Mediterranean ExchangeSustainable tourism and the forthcoming European Year of Cultural Heritage are among the themes to be discussed at the 20th edition of the Mediterranean Exchange of Archaeological Tourism in Paestum from October 26 to 29. The 2017 edition of the Exchange was launched at the Milan International Tourism Exchange travel exhibition in the Campania Region’s exhibition space.

 
According to Francesco Caruso, Campania regional councillor for international and UNESCO relationships, “The region of Campania is committed to the development of its cultural heritage, represented by six UNESCO sites, and it supports the Exchange, above all this year in which it will be a focus of the UNESCO archaeological sites.”

 
As per the Exchange’s director, Ugo Picarelli, “The Paestum Exchange is important not only for its archaeological dissemination, but also from a political point of view, because it melds traditions and heritages common to the countries of the Mediterranean.” He added, “Reaching the 20-year milestone is an extraordinary result, most of all for the international recognition we receive.”

 
The event would have important dignitaries like Italian Culture Minister Dario Franceschini, Jordan Tourism and Antiquities Minister Lina Annab and Ethiopian Culture and Tourism Minister Amin Abdulkedir and is sponsored by the Italian Culture Ministry (MiBACT), UNESCO, UNWTO, the International Centre for the Study of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property (ICCROM) and the Italian Foreign Ministry.
