These insights was combined with scientific territorial analysis and the results was enhanced through the use of video- & audio-recordings.

The platform enables the region and its stakeholders to access a series of short information, photos and videos designed to provide essential data on the entire coastal heritage of Molise. In such a way, the work enhances communication between Molise Region and their stakeholders on different heritage themes relevant for an improved management.
