About CulMe-WeOnCT

Culture in the Mediterranean and Europe – Weaving on Common Threads” (CulMe-WeOnCT ) project focuses on the valorization of the common historical and cultural heritage of four countries of the Eastern Mediterranean area (Greece, Italy, Egypt and Jordan) through the exploitation of new technologies, in a way ensuring the promotion of mutual understanding and dialogue.

Through CulMe-WeOnCT activities, the common historical origins of those cultural elements that are still influential in the current lifestyle of the partner countries are revealed, enhanced and promoted. The Greek-Roman culture and its influences on the Eastern Mediterranean area are on the spot.

Therefore, a research will reveal the common historical background of the partner countries, focusing in two eras of their common heritage: During the first three centuries after the death of Alexander the Great (323 -30 B.C.E) and during the three centuries C.E. when Rome established its dominance in the Mediterranean, developing in parallel, the cultural affiliation with Greece.

Tool for the promotion of the findings will be a DVD including a documentary with 3-dimension enactments of the Greek-Roman assets. Schools, universities, museums, cultural and other relevant bodies will receive the DVD and be encouraged to creatively build on it.

Raising wide awareness, the documentary will be presented in TV and one wide, open to the public, conference will be held. For the viability of the project, the partners will seek to create network and various initiatives promoting the common culture of this Eastern Mediterranean area.
