The coordination group “Borgo Vergini – Luoghi di Cultura”, constituted by the Associations VerginiSanità, Celanapoli, Getta la Rete and SMMAVE Centre for contemporary art, has presented the Touristic/cultural Map for the area of Borgo dei Vergini.
It is the first product coming from the project for the enhancement of the Cultural Heritage of the area, in collaboration with the Order of Architects of Naples and the Department of Social Science of the University “Federico II”, with the patronage of the Archconfraternity of Pellegrini, the Pellegrini Foundation, the Missionari Vincenziani and the Archconfraternity of S. Maria della Misericordia.
The objective of the coordination group is to improve the promotion and fruition of the “Places of Culture” managed by its Associations, through historic-artistic and architectural research, educational guided itineraries, grassroots projects, specific communication campaigns.
In recent years the local Associations have been promoting a series of projects with the purpose of favouring and supporting the requalification of such an important and precious part of the city. It is a call for change that comes from “below” [rather than being imposed from the top], that can be achieved because it is driven by the enthusiasm that has animated the many organisations that operate in the district for many years.
