The aim of the conference is to discuss the current notion of place of memory, in particular the criteria and methodology of the selection of places of memory as well as the forms of their protection, conservation, management and interpretation.

The conference will be organized as three thematic sessions:
  1. Definition of the place of memory from the perspective of heritage protection /can places of memory be categorised in groups of characteristic features?
  2. Interpretation of places of memory/how to communicate the meaning of places of memory - relationship between the tangible and intangible components
  3. Forms of conservation protection in places of memory and the rules governing them/integrity and authenticity in protection of places of memory.

The delegates are kindly invited to use the Best Practice Reservation Portal that is a practical application of the Life Beyond Tourism  philosophy. You can choose among over 200 accommodation facilities to get the option that better suits you in terms of prices (the same hotel fares as in the other international reservation portals), location, category, etc.
This is a way to better know how the Life Beyond Tourism Model operates on the territory and for the territory interpreting and communicating it to the visitors; indeed, booking your stay with Vivafirenze you (without any extra-costs for you) contribute to support a crowdfunding campaign for 4 special restoration projects in Florence (click here) as with the Model you can do on your territory.
For this reason, the reservation portal has been selected by the Organising Committee as the official one for the Conference.
Please kindly note, given the occupancy level of hotels in Florence expected in March, rooms will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.


Born from the Life Beyond Tourism philosophy, it is the first non-profit booking portal for hotels in Florence and its surroundings and proposes an innovative model of sustainable tourism that connects the traveler, tourist operators and the heritage of the territory. By booking in one of the structures of  the traveler can contribute to conservation projects and development of the area and of the culture of Florence, UNESCO World Heritage Site. 
The traveler books his room for free with direct payment at the hotel, after the stay. What differentiates is the direct relationship between each booking made and the financing of projects in support of the heritage of Florence, at no extra cost to our guests.
