Sardegna – Italy
The “Società Cooperativa Archeotour”, a cooperative company, was established in 1987 with the aim of preserving and enhancing the historical, archaeological, cultural and ethnographic heritage of the Paulilatino area with a productive perspective. It is still the managing body of the Santa Cristina Park (Parco di Santa Cristina) and of the Palazzo Atzori Museum in Paulilatino and occupies 17 work units.
From 1998 to 2000 it started the management of the Roman Baths (Terme Romane) and of the Casa Aragonese of Fordongianus by exporting its own organisational model through which the foundation of another Cooperative was promoted. We also collaborate with other realities with the aim of contributing to increasing the number of visitors in the provincial territory or even more simply of distributing most of the same tourist flow between these major poles of attraction and their surrounding territories.
Among the actions we carry out to mention: the participation in trade fairs, cultural and sports events; the creation of educational tours; the sharing of the network between companies on the websites of each as well as the production of printed promotional material on the network.
Since 2018, a renewable three-year agreement has been in place between the Municipality of Paulilatino, owner of the area, and MiBACT, which allows the Municipality to implement new archaeological excavation campaigns under the scientific direction of the Universities of Cagliari and Sassari.
Under this agreement, the Municipality of Paulilatino was able to carry out a series of interventions for the safety, excavation, cataloguing and conservation of the finds.
In addition, the naturalistic component, which is an integral part of the archaeological park and that is linked to an in-depth study of the values of the site regarding seeds and other finds of plant origin found in the area, is worthy of note.
