A virtual exhibition on the Urban Port Heritage Restoration in the Adriatic Sea
The platform MYPORTHERITAGE developed within the TEMPUS project is launched
From 31 December 2020 it is possible to virtually visit the exhibition MYPORTHERITAGE dedicated to the history of the port cities of Ravenna, Rijeka and Solin.
The exhibition has been developed within the framework of the European project TEMPUS, co-financed by the INTERREG V-A Italy – Croatia 2014 – 2020 Cross-Border Cooperation Programme. The exhibition highlights the historical aspect of the development of ports, as well as their impact on their surroundings in different periods, while the visitors will gain additional knowledge about commercial, productive and leisure activities that marked the life of ports and the evolution of relations between the two Adriatic coasts. The entire virtual tour is based on the key concept of flows (of goods, materials, technologies, people and cultures).

About the TEMPUS project
The TEMPUS Project – TEMporary Uses as start-up actions to enhance port (in)tangible heritage – brings together 9 partners from Croatia and Italy, namely with the aim of regenerating abandoned urban port areas while respecting the cultural heritage and customs of the community. TEMPUS project activities focus on three pilot areas: Ravenna, Solin and Rijeka.
The primary goal of the project is to test the experimental methodology of regeneration of neglected urban port areas by creating long-term strategies focused on culture and the community. Thanks to its integrated social activation, cultural valorisation and the involvement of concerned stakeholders, TEMPUS will temporarily reactivate three pilot port areas (Ravenna, Solin, Rijeka) with the aim of initiating the implementation of long-term regeneration strategies.
Why temporary uses?
Through temporary uses it is possible to intervene on a building and its pertaining areas to promote a spatial requalification through light and targeted interventions for the implementation of specific activities, with a limited duration in time.
Temporary uses allow abandoned urban spaces to be revitalised with the aim of transforming them into engines for the activation of new cultural, economic and social values. The idea behind temporary uses is not to wait for the realisation of a large-scale permanent project, but to focus on a "light" and incremental redevelopment of spaces.
The TEMPUS Project aims to connect partner cities with their ports and create a new social life space that will encourage creative entrepreneurship, as well as entrepreneurial initiatives in culture and tourism. In the long run, the project aims to stimulate economic development based on the valorisation of hidden tangible and intangible port heritage, including the archaeological background and natural context, namely starting with temporary use activities.
