ARACNE project focuses on the cultural heritage of the European silk production and its preservation, protection and valorisation
The production and the past and present development of the silk sector can be again the common basis for a future European Silk Route intended as a cultural itinerary across Europe. To create a wide and well-connected network that, starting from the historical path followed by Marco Polo in his travels to East, even includes the routes of production and commercialization of silk in Europe in the following centuries.
"The production and the past and present development of the silk sector in the ARACNE Consortium countries represent the common thread for the future “European Silk Route” as a cultural itinerary across Europe, to boost the European values in relation to the silk arts and for the benefit, prosperity, peace of our societies.
