“Turisti per Bari”: this is the title of the pilot action dedicated to the discovery and valorization of the historical center of Bari and the Murat district

“Turisti per Bari”, the pilot action realized by the Municipality of Bari in the frame of the S.LI.DES project, had a huge success.

The initiative was dedicated to the discovery and valorization of the historical center of Bari and the Murat district through a series of activities, events and exhibitions linked to the history of the territory, held on two consecutive weekends, 12-13 and 19-20 November 2021.

An interactive story for residents and visitors, who enjoyed peculiar experiences of the city with the aim to add and create value. All the appointments were designed to establish "multi-sensorial" connections: itinerant tastings of food and wine excellences, treasure hunts in the alleys of the old city, juggling performances, live music, extraordinary openings of artisan shops, guided tours, exhibitions of ceramics and practical laboratory activities with master craftsmen and pasta makers to tell the ancient history of Bari in a suggestive way.

About 1500 people among locals (90%) and tourists (10%) participated in the initiatives, specifically held during the low season. Also, a great network of local tourist guides, entertainment and craft associations, artists, pasta makers, artisans, food operators and music bands were involved in the activities, with the opportunity to show and transmit some of the most ancient traditions of Bari’s intangible culture.

The initiative wanted to promote also the idea of ​ sustainable holiday to educate the public about alternative and responsible travel formulas. The realization of this event was also possible thanks to the involvement of a dense network of local operators who still today make their products in compliance with the most ancient traditions and make this modus operandi the heart of their business, representing a pride for the whole local community.
