Sustainable tourism - THE NOMINEES


Company: Associazione culturale Comitato di San Floriano

Illegio is a small mountain village in the Carnic Alps, above Tolmezzo, in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region.
A "dying" village, as many in the tiny settlements in our mountains.

A few years ago the pastor Don Alessio Geretti decided to revive it through art exhibitions.
Every year Illegio hosts an international thematic exhibition with artworks from all over Europe. At the same time, there are events on the topic "a language of the soul".

Together with 40 volunteers, the San Floriano cultural association made it possible. Thanks to Illegio’s art exhibition programmes, visited by thousands of tourists every year, many young people were trained, got a job and thus this small village gradually was repopulated.
