RenEU - New Renaissance in Europe is a two-year European project financed by the European Commission within the scope of the last call for proposals of the Culture Programme 2007-2013. Five European nations – Italy, Spain, Portugal, Poland and France have participated in the project, creating a European network on the theme of Cultural Heritage related to the Renaissance, and promoting a reflection and a debate on the EU dimension of the Renaissance as a phenomenon shaping our contemporary Europe. In this context, RenEU has focused on:
- creating cultural itineraries, which bring the local and European nature of the Renaissance to life;
- enabling intercultural dialogue among European citizens by linking the role of Renaissance in building up a common cultural background in Europe;
- raise awareness on our common European past.
RenEU allows the wide public to enjoy, from a new perspective, the cultural routes integrated in one single European itinerary.
