The "IT CULTURE" project aims to support a subset of the tourism industry related to cultural tourism and to "shift" part of the visitors to alternative forms of tourism. The design was based on their practice cultural routes for the cross-border area in order to attract tourists focusing on the places / monuments of cultural interest of which a large part remains touristically invisible. The main tool of IT CULTURE is the promotion of cultural paths with the use of electronic multimedia for the wide dissemination of information and the transition to the digital age. In addition to highlighting the cultural wealth of the region, the preservation and promotion of the natural environment is sought, which is an integral part of the cultural tradition of both areas..
Based on this goal, the project partners implemented a number of interrelated actions with a broader vision, the concentration, preservation and careful promotion of the archaeological wealth and folklore of the areas. This is also reflected in the electronic platform www.roadstoculture.eu but mainly in the museological studies that set the conditions for the creation of museums in Grevena and Pustec, which is the long-term goal for both areas..
