The Heritour

On Sunday May 26th, the Heritour, an event dedicated to the rediscovery of the beauty of the co-district including -Alessandrino, Centocelle, Torre Spaccata neighborhoods- took place.

Organized by CooperACTiva in collaboration with Luiss LabGov, the first event which was initally envisioned to be a bike tour, shifted into a walking tour due to bad weather conditions. At 10am, the group, equipped with torches and helmets, was guided by several speleologists from Roma Sotterranea through the tunnel and its caves which was made accessible thanks to the cleaning operations carried out by volunteers, on the day preceeding the event.

At lunch time, in the “In Venadi Vino” wine bar, the participants enjoyed a pleasant convivial moment, rediscovering the flavors of the typical local cuisine. In the early afternoon, they could take part in a treasure hunt, aimed at supporting the fundraising in favor of the reconstruction of the Cafeteria Library “La Pecora Elettrica”, victim last April 25th of an incendiary act, was set up by Centocellule.

The participants were eventually invited to participate in the “Quartiere in Movimento” (Moving District) contest, which was created with the aim of unfolding the patrimonial area of ​​Centocelle, Alessandrino and Torre Spaccata. It is thought as a means to generate a narrative that brings out the richness of the tangible and intangible heritage, and highlights the shared values, beliefs, knowledge and traditions.
