Culture and Tourism represent for Italy and other European countries an excellent driver of restart, development and quantitative growth. For these reasons, these sectors constitute a significant part in resources’ allocation in the Italian PNRR (3.5% of the total, equal to 6.68 billion Euro), aiming at digitalisation, but also at the rediscovery of human capital, an essential factor for cultural dissemination.
The Chamber, promoter of several initiatives in this field, is working on the creation of new synergies to further strengthen the relations between Italy and Cyprus in the field of cultural development, providing interesting impulses and opportunities in the field of cultural experiences supported by new Technologies, such as augmented reality or digital museums.
