ATRIUM The Architecture of Totalitarian Regimes in Urban Managements

ATRIUM The Architecture of Totalitarian Regimes in Urban Managements is an ambitious project which aims to put a key element of twentieth-century European history, heritage and memory into greater focus. It is ambitious in its scope but also in the extent and nature of the partnership.
The project is made up of 18 partners from 11 different countries from the area of South East Europe. The partners come from Italy, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Hungary, Slovakia, Romania, Greece, Croatia, Serbia, Albania and Bosnia-Herzegovina, and all share a desire to focus on the architectural heritage of the different totalitarian regimes which they have experienced in the twentieth century from a cultural and historical point of view.
Through ATRIUM, researches, economic studies, documentations & tools will be prepared to submit a specific dossier to the Council of Europe to be acknowledged by it as European Cultural Route. This will also be a leverage for the economic valorisation of the Partners' territories.
