That of historic properties is a unique network with immense social, cultural and economic value, which the owners strive daily to preserve and enhance. Historic homes, in fact, constitute not only an immense cultural heritage but are also the lynchpin of a circular economy for the relevant territory.
The National Day is an opportunity to raise awareness among civil society and institutions of the role that historic houses play in the socio-economic fabric of the country. Their induced activities generate a positive impact on many supply chains: from crafts to tourism, agricultural and wine production. Many are the professional figures that gravitate around a mansion, skilled trades-craftsmen, restorers, master glassmakers-which are increasingly difficult to find.
