FIRST EUROPEAN INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION
‘’THE FOOTSTEPS’’ WE ARE BECAUSE WE WERE
The objective is to start the right development that our land deserves.Although our territory is
there have been many discoveries that testify to the presence of human beings since the
The social life of that communities has existed since the age of prehistory and confirmed
nowadays by the continuity of pastoral and paesant life in the Murgia. This culture has been
lived with many and enormous sacrifices until a short time ago.
The social life of the community of that era is also witnessed by the large necropolises builded
in that area and from the dwellings dug in natural caves that are adorned with frescoes. That
features emphasize a well-defined culture.These collectivities had rules of life perfectly
integrated with the cycle and perpetual continuity of nature.
Through the knowledge trasmitted to us from the past and from the insights of what we were,we
will highlight extraordinary and new opportunities that will allow us to start new development
processes related to tourism. Precisely the tourism represents an important branch of economic
recovery in our Murgian territory.Young people must be encouraged to focus on the culture of
the past: both for the natural beauty that surrounds us and for the great archaeological and
architectural heritage inherited from ‘’who we were’’.
It is our priority and special attention on the food to offer to tourists!
It is important to bring all the recipes related to wild herbs into the food system.These represent
genuine foods that besidesbeing important for the nutrition of the people who live in the upper
Murgia. Moreover they would aim at increasing and improve the export potential of our products.
The inevitable commitment therefore remains to continue to carry out archaeological research to
bring out new attractive discoveries , an additional element to stimulate global tourism in the
Initiatives like ‘’the footsteps’’ must be supported because they aim at spreading knowledge of
the territory in the world and they are preparatory to repair the damages suffered due to the lack
of attention by the central government. The little aid and the lack of investments (particularly in
communication and infrastructure) are the major cause of the impoverishment of our territory.
Our young talents migrate to other states in search of fortune, waiting for initiatives
to be launched by the government to start a due development. To create wealth,
today more than ever it is necessary to aim at strengthening and enhancing what surrounds us:
what we have and therefore what we were. Our goal is that young people, forced to flee their
homes, have the right to return to take back the spaces unjustly taken away by those who,
unscrupulously, have marked their destiny to appropriate everything.
Our association operates in the exclusive interest of the present and future community.
