Protected areas as a driving force for the development of the Adriatic area. This is the important theme of "AdriaPAN in Europe": a meeting for all directors, actors, technicians and scientists, involved with Parks, Reserves and Marine Protected Areas of our sea. The network, existing since 2008, is called AdriaPAN (Adriatic Protected Areas Network) and involves more than 30 protected areas of all the countries along the Adriatic sea. On January 31and February 1, 2013 we will meet in San Benedetto del Tronto (AP - Italy) in a workshop entitled "AdriaPAN in Europe-EU programs for the Adriatic Protected Areas: Life+ and more."
When: 11.00 hrs, Saturday 2 Oct 2010 Where: News room, Abruzzo Regional Council (Piazza Unione, Pescara) Press conference about the recognition of the Marine Protected Area “Torre del Cerrano” as a SIC site (Site of Community Importance).
On 23 and 24 September 2010, the ancient tower “Torre di Cerrano” will be the venue for the event “The Park of Tomorrow”: workshops, conferences and proposals for the Marine Protected Area, and finally a dinner party in the Tower.
“Torre di Cerrano” is a beautiful tower located in the heart of the Marine Protected Area. It has been overlooking the Adriatic coastal landscape since the XVI century. When coming back home from a journey, how often have we seen its profile and, at the same moment, had the pleasant feeling of being finally at home? Or how often have we looked at it and fantasized about its story?
