Italy’s cultural heritage, as it was once known, is being transformed in the coming years by a series of cultural projects and institutions that aim to protect it, according to an Italian cultural organization.
The new projects are designed to create an atmosphere of continuity and continuity of identity, with the emphasis on a culture that is still present in the hearts of all Italians, said Alessandro Della Valle, a member of the International Committee of the Institute of Italian Culture.
The International Committee on the Culture of Italy, a network of cultural institutions and organizations based in Milan, will be involved in planning, drafting and implementing these initiatives, he told AFP.
Della ValLE is the director of the Italian Cultural Heritage Foundation, an organization which has helped to promote Italian cultural heritage for more than 60 years.
The initiative comes amid a rise in the number of foreign tourists visiting Italy, and a decline in the numbers of Italians living in the country.
It was the number who visited Italy in 2016 that was highest, at almost 1.5 million.
However, this number fell to 1.38 million in 2017, and has been falling ever since.
Italy has experienced an unprecedented influx of foreign visitors since the start of the economic crisis, which has been fuelled by a number of factors, including the Brexit vote and the political turmoil in France.
Italy’s population has decreased by almost 11 percent over the past decade.
According to the most recent statistics from the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness, Italy has the second largest population loss in Europe, behind only Greece.
