QUEST 4th Transnational Project Meeting in Pisa

The 4th Transnational Project Meeting of the QUEST- promoting QUality intErnships in Sustainable Tourism and cultural heritage management project, funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union, was held on Thursday, May 18th in Pisa, at Timesis Headquarter.
All partners attended the meeting in person.
The main objective of the Meeting was to discuss the development of all the project results.
In addition, the partners thoroughly discussed the next activities: Multiplier Events and LTTA Learning Teaching and Training Activity. Reporting and Communication Activities were discussed in the afternoon.
On the occasion of the meeting and at the same time also of the International Museum Day (18 May), the staff of our partner Timesis organised a special evening visit to the Museum of the Ancient Ships at the Arsenali Medicei on the lungarni of Pisa.
The Museum is divided into eight sections that illustrate the history of the city between archaeology and legend from the Etruscans to the Romans to the Middle Ages. The exhibition reconstructs the relationship of the city with water: the floods, the territory divided between canals and centuriations, the Port of Pisa, the ceramic workshops, fishing, agriculture, timber and how this intense productive activity has affected the territory causing already in ancient times its hydrogeological instability.
A wonderful museum, unfortunately little known!
The V Transnational Meeting will be held in Selinunte (Sicily-Italy) in December 2023.
