For the first time the IACC is collaborating with the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Tourism of Italy for the project called Signa Maris, aimed to promote cultural and natural offerings of the Southern Italy via its ports, particularly those ports in the Regions of Calabria, Campania, Puglia (Apulia) and Sicilia (Sicily).
The project Signa Maris interprets the marinas located along the Italian coast as gateways to the territory, and invites tourists traveling by boat to avail themselves of the cultural and natural heritage within easy reach of any given touristic port.
Several presentations of the project are planned in different international cities by the network of the Italian Chambers in the World.
In November the IACC will be in charge of organizing in Miami a presentation for travel press and tour operators.
