THE PROJECT. The award is part of #pid4mirabilia, the collaboration project between Associazione Mirabilia Network - which brings together 17 Chambers of Commerce that have at least one UNESCO site in their territory - and the Pid (Punto impresa digitale), the first local information and guidance centre for SMEs on digital transformation.
The Chambers of Commerce of Bari, Basilicata, Benevento, Caserta, Chieti-Pescara, Genoa, Messina, Molise, Pavia, Riviere di Liguria, Sassari, South-East Sicily, Treviso-Belluno, Pordenone-Udine, Umbria, Verona and Venezia Giulia have been involved throughout Italy.
THE NETWORK. In the last year, the PIDs of these Cciaa have acted as points of reference, almost a first aid for companies that, because of Covid, have experienced a difficult period of lockdown that has severely tested their very existence.
Thanks to the collaboration with Mirabilia Network it was possible to network and enhance the territories through an integrated tourist offer, to promote the use of new technologies to enhance the traditions and territory of the associated sites, to enrich the range of cultural experiences and to integrate tradition and innovation.
It was possible to create and disseminate webinars to help SMEs, particularly those in the tourism sector, to restart after the pandemic. Demonstrating that 4.0 technologies can do a lot for businesses and the tourism sector in particular.
And Mirabilia Top of the PID award represents the synthesis of this long work.
