The Hannibal Pathway – France

An itinerary on the footsteps of the epic enterprise of the most famous Carthaginian historical character, born in 2008 in collaboration with the UNESCO Unitwin Network “Culture, Tourism, Development”, the Hannibal Pathway is an intercultural lab on training, culture and development of Mediterranean territories based on the valorisation of intangible heritage and historical memory.

Since it is based on intangible heritage, it is an innovative route: the re-enactment of military events through the testimonies of the historians of the past and the scientific reconstructions of contemporary historians. Through an international network of pilot centres on the heritage pedagogy in four countries (Spain, France, Italy and Tunisia), the Hannibal Path is an ideal lab on the studies of heritage promotion through a creative fruition of cultural and historical landscape.
