Stemming from the partnership with INCULTUM H2020 project dedicated to promote cultural tourism in Europe, PHOTOCONSORTIUM aggregated a selected collection of contemporary travel photography in Europeana.
As a curatorial effort to promote the reuse of cultural collections in the area of tourism, a number of nice Europeana galleries was also created, to discover unknown or lesser known locations and stories of communities in Europe.
Today we present “Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, Garfagnana“.
The Garfagnana is a geographical region of central Italy, set in the upper valley of the river Serchio, and thus lies between the main ridge of the Northern Apennines and the Alpi Apuane. Here, the village of San Pellegrino in Alpe is the highest permanently inhabited area in the whole Apennine chain. Due to its position it constituted, since the Middle Ages, a passage for pilgrims and merchants. Mountain views, history, nature and excellent food attact tourists and scout groups in every season.
