Referring to the future of ATRIUM project and the role of the manual having been created for a successful management of specific architectural heritage, there are some undeniable facts and factors that dictated its development.

Generally speaking one of the key features of the twentieth century architectural heritage is that in most environments its preservation role is still in the process of winning recognition. Moreover, the project examines the part of the architectural heritage created in the specific circumstances of totalitarian regimes. In some cases architecture was the propaganda arm of the political system, while in some other environments it resisted the political pressure, and traced its own path, which diverged from the political rigidity. Such different concepts have also been reflected in the heterogeneous cases featured in the project.

The main objective of the ATRIUM project is to create a cultural route on the architectural heritage of totalitarian regimes, and to contribute to better insight and understanding of this traumatic period in European history. To reach the objective and to implement it into the already available systems of the urban management programs, we aim to provide answers to two sets of questions.

The very first question that should be answered is how to effectively assess, evaluate and preserve the most significant remains of such historical periods. In continuation the question raised is how to develop the management guidelines relevant to the systems of all eleven partner countries involved. The guidelines should be in sync with the national heritage management principles and the heritage protection system. At the same time the guidelines should create conditions for the universal approach to the management of the cultural heritage route, for one of the key objectives of the project is to expand, and to include new locations from the countries not integrated into the project yet. The recommendations for the management guidelines were obtained from the research work done by various experts who aimed to give accurate answers to the suggested starting points, and thus contributed to more effective and systematic researching. Subsequently a great deal of recommendations is focused on the appropriate guide to analytical research work, upgraded with the suggestions for the management of the entire system, as well as the management of individual sites.

The project is a pilot version, the quality of which will be assessed and evaluated only after its practical use. The creators of the project thus expect a response from its users, local communities, and experts whose experience will immensely contribute to the optimization process of the urban architectural heritage management, as well as the manual update. Therefore the existing manual should be the basis for the development of a systematic approach to the preservation of heritage, originating from a specific period. Only in this way can it make a step ahead on the route to a comprehensive presentation of the architectural heritage of the previous century, which is an objective part of the European history.

The Architecture of Totalitarian Regimes in Urban Managements is an ambitious project which aims to put a key element of twentieth-century European history, heritage and memory into greater focus.  It is ambitious in its scope but also in the extent and nature of the partnership.

The project is made up of 18 partners from 11 different countries from the area of south-east Europe. The partners come from Italy, Slovenia, Bulgaria, Hungary, Slovakia, Romania, Greece, Croatia, Serbia, Albania and Bosnia-Herzegovina, and all share a desire to focus on the architectural heritage of the different totalitarian regimes which they have experienced in the twentieth century from a cultural and historical point of view.

Through ATRIUM, researches, economic studies, documentations & tools will be prepared to submit a specific dossier to the Council of Europe to be acknowledged by it as European Cultural Route. This will also be leverage for the economic valorisation of the Partners' territories.

Project duration: January 2011 – June 2013
Total budget of the project: 1.932.044,00 €

ReNewTown project “New post-socialist city: Competitive and Attractive” focuses on reducing the disparities in the quality of urban environment of the post socialist cities.

Evolution of the word economy in the last two decades, together with the transformation form socialism toward market and democracy in Central Europe have brought both – positive and negative - consequences for the urban areas. Post-socialist cities, particulary the former industrial ones have become the problematic areas. Estimation is that over 300 million people in CEE live in areas impacted

by socialist era. Close to 2/3 of them lives in cities and towns often with districts created and fast developing in socialist period.

The concept of the project comes from commonly shared problems of the urban areas in former socialist European countries: What to do with the post-socialist cities, particularly with the post-industrial districts inherited from the socialist era? And how to transform them to be more competitive and attractive for people and investments?

The urban areas with socialist burden face many social and physical problems deriving from low housing standards, unattractive appearance, excessive space usage and lack of local cultural and social events. The problems of city districts with socialist burden are affecting not only inhabitants of socialist depraved buildings, but also overall city image and economy performance. Areas with socialist burden can become attractive places to live and work in. ReNewTown project will provide practical knowledge on how to overcome the problems of these areas and take advantage of their specificity. Project aims to break down the negative stereotype of the post socialist space and reveal its hidden potential.

The Metropolitanate of Moldavia and Bucovina – Archidiocese of Iasi is located in the North-East region of Romania and has under its administration many monasteries, churches and historical buildings of great tourist potential, representing a real heritage of the Moldavian region.

This institution consists of various centers suitable for the development of a large series of fields of activities: tourism, cultural and educational activities, social and philanthropic activities, economic and agricultural activities.

Since of January 2011, The Metropolitanate Moldavia and Bucovina works together with another 17 partners from South-East Europe within the ATRIUM project - Architecture of Totalitarian Regimes of the XX° Century in Urban Management, submitted by the Municipality of Forli-Italy, lead partner of the project. The project, funded by the Trans-national Cooperation Programme South-East Europe, will last 30 months until June 2013.

The total budget amount for this project is 1,932,044.00 Euro.

The main goal of the project is the definition and promotion of a cultural route on architecture of totalitarian regimes of the 20th century. The project will be completed by preparing a specific dossier to be transmitted to the Council of Europe in order to receive the acknowledgement as European Cultural Route and inserted in the Atlas of Cultural Route.

The Metropolitanate of Moldavia and Bucovina joined this project with a view to acquiring experience in the field of trans-national European projects and to develop and strengthen the collaborative relations with other countries form South-East Europe and even wider. Another reason for which the Metropolitanate involved in the project was the desire to include the cultural heritage from the communist regime in the tourist activities.

Thus, the Metropolitanate seeks to promote the communist architectural-style buildings through the agency of the cultural route which will be created at the end of the project.

In order to carry out the main objective of the project and its own goals, the Metropolitanate of Moldavia and Bucovina will provide all available resources, its wide experience in promoting the cultural tourist attractions and its active involvement in planning, organizing and implementing all necessary activities.

Through the involvement in this project, the Metropolitanate of Moldavia and Bucovina aims at providing the transfer of know-how regarding the trans-European grants management and the accomplishment of cultural routes towards the project staff.

As the transnational cooperation allows the exchange of know-how of management, preservation and valorization of cultural assets, the Metropolitanate of Moldavia and Bucovina seeks to create long-term connections with organizations from South-East Europe in order to achieve new trans-national projects in the near future.

In conclusion, direct and active involvement, not only on behalf of The Metropolitanate, but of all European partners, will contribute to the achievement of the expected results: preparation of a trans-national manual of wise management, preparation of cultural operators for the valorisation of the cultural heritage, followed by the establishment of a transnational association for the promotion of the cultural route and finally the design of the cultural route concerned.

What is a “forum media”? Generally speaking it is an opportunity for informing about Atrium specific target groups, in this case the media. The goal we pursued for such an activity was not to promote a specific tourist route, which does not exist yet. We did not follow the “educational” way, although we did use some of its features, such as guided tours for journalists.

Instead, we tried to involve and inform a large number of local stakeholders during the preliminary phase. We achieved this by spreading information in the local area so that public and private bodies, associations etc could become aware of the goals of the project. This had a great impact on the territory and on the stakeholders, who could become public and private partners in a more advanced operative phase. In fact, only by involving partners and keeping them updated on the project is it possible to make them part of the project: they already know what the project is about, the impact it will have on the area, etc and this will decrease the chances of or eliminate any future conflict, which statistics say is the main obstacle to the completion of any project that must be shared by several subjects.

The media, finally, were not involved as simple news deliverers (unidirectional communication), but also as the barometer of the situation (registering people’s opinions and feeling). The journalists who participated in the media forums are considered “opinion makers” working in a bidirectional communication system (not only the local authority deliver information to media but also media communicate with the local authority), which is very fruitful for a higher consensus about the project.

The activities carried out
The two forum media were organised on the basis of guided tours. In particular, the Province – which represented small municipalities with interesting examples of rationalist architecture – chose to carry out guided tours that encompassed both districts: Cesenatico for the Cesena part and Predappio for the Forlì part. In this way an equal dissemination of the project was performed in the territory. In both places morning events took place following this schedule: on 19th departure from Cesena to Cesenatico case study “colonia marina AGIP” with a hired bus, transfer to Cesenatico case study “colonia marina AGIP”, presentation of the project to the media, delivering of dissemination materials (local route maps, brochure, survey) and visit to the pertinent monuments explained by the Scientific Committee expert, Prof. Ulisse Tramonti, and final buffet lunch. On 20th departure from Forlì to Predappio, hometown of Benito Mussolini with a hired bus, presentation of the project to the media, delivering of dissemination materials (local route maps, brochure, survey) and visit to the pertinent monuments explained by the Scientific Committee expert, Prof. Ulisse Tramonti, and final buffet lunch.

The events, which were attended by 19 journalists, lasted about 5 hours, which established an unconventional relationship between institutions and media as the usual press releases and conferences were replaced by something completely new.

The logistics involved writing down a tour programme (which included places that are either private or not normally open to the public because they are waiting to be renovated), trips by coach (Cesena-Cesenatico and

back, Forlì-Predappio and back), catered buffets, preparing brochures and  other dissemination materials, photo sessions, paperwork concerning contracts and payment of TV and other media, public relations with other bodies and editorial offices of newspapers with the attempt to directly involve editorial staff.

The Manual of Wise Management, Preservation, Reuse and Economic Valorisation of Architecture of the Totalitarian Regimes of the XXth Century (short name: Manual) is intended as one of the key results and outputs of the ATRIUM project.  Though this article is written within the process of its preparation, it can be said that the structure of the manual is clarified through the stages of its preparation up to now.

The Manual represents an up-grade of the ATRIUM survey, where some case studies have been identified. It opens the discussion about what to do with those and other potential cases, how to deal with them, how to develop visions, concepts and systems for their management options.  As the ATRIUM partnership structure is composed from a wide variety of partner types, their cultural and political concepts, their ideas about the architectural heritage dealt with, and their ideas about their potential management, the manual first needs to address this variety, and second, it needs to reflect it within the guidelines produced.  If one partner is most concerned about how to 'sell' this type of heritage, already accepted in general and professional public, the other faces the problem of destructive forces in its context, and needs to use this Manual for educational purposes first.  Addressing the diversity of needs within the partnership is one of the key goals of this Manual preparation. The Manual thus starts with the definition of context, approaches, methods and criteria, related to the topic discussed. The context is illustrated through history, interpretation issues and terminology: it describes Europe in the period of totalitarianism, questions of interpreting the heritage of totalitarian regimes and adds a glossary of key terms.

The practical part of the Manual is composed from the meta-projects and feasibility studies of the partnership involved, developed from the case studies of the ATRIUM survey. Not only best practices, also some challenging examples are chosen to illustrate the potential of the variety within the ATRIUM project.

The core of the Manual offers a series of guidelines. It starts with interpretation guidelines, continues with guidelines for preservation, renovation and reuse of the architectural heritage dealt with, and focuses on management guidelines. It answers the question about how to develop the management vision when the management topic is very sensitive or challenging, how to develop the system of organizing places and paths,

how to develop the concept and strategy, how to prepare its digital support system and how to arrange its structure for monitoring and evaluation. Last but not least, the economic potentials of the architecture of totalitarian regimes of the XXth century are exposed and some words about the future discussed.

The Manual is addressed to a wide variety of target groups, from scientific and professional communities to policy makers. To achieve its usability in both research and daily practice, the process of its preparation involves research centres and universities, developing interdisciplinary groups of study, building on all the partner inputs available. It establishes a meta-platform for education and research in the field discussed an interface for interdisciplinary discussions.

The third transnational project meeting has been held in Ljubljana and Velenje, Slovenia and has been organized and hosted by the University of Ljubljana, Faculty of architecture in collaboration with the Municipality of Velenje. During the three day meeting, May 16.-18., 41 participants from 15 different countries discussed the current affairs of the ATRIUM project, evaluated the progress since the previous meeting and decided on next steps in the project for the future. The agenda for the three days was packed with the contents and the intensive work and discussion sessions were interrupted only by working lunches. The 18 partner consortium brings a lot of cultural versatility and multiplicity of views on the project topic, with the lively debate never far away.

First day – Wednesday - started with the short overview of the state of the art of the project. The host Tadeja Zupancic welcomed the guests and lead partner Municipality of Forli represented by large delegation headed by project leader Claudia Castellucci presented the agenda, reported on on-going activities and consortium status. Ognjen Tomic from Forli has acted as the chair and the coordinator of the meeting.

The introduction has been followed by the report on Survey and Forum Media (WP3) by NIICH Sofia partner and Municipality of Velenje. The transnational survey of case studies has finished successfully. The English brochure of the Survey is printed with national versions prepared for print. Four forum medias have been finished (Forli 2x, Greece, Gyor) and additional are on their way.

After the lunch the topic of digital cataloguing of selected items (WP4) has been introduced by Ceti Athena partner and discussed with the others. The participants got to know the structure and functionalities of the cataloguing tool and the catalogue itself, layouts, editing possibilities, public/private access, etc. The lively discussion ensued about the primary and secondary sources that will be catalogued and their distinction, definitions and format. It has been decided that the topic will be on the next day agenda as well, getting into more details and feedback from the participants.

Partners from Ljubljana and Subotica have led the crucial and productive round tables on topic of: Preservation & reuse & renovation and Management and economic valorisation. Both are the major issues in the upcoming Manual of wise management, preservation, reuse and economic valorisation of architecture of the totalitarian regimes of the XXth century. Partner by partner expressed their views and opinions on what they expect from the manual, what the envisioned content is, how to organize it, what are partners’ experiences with this sort of heritage and what can be used and learned from such cases. The contents of the manual and new target dates have been discussed and agreed upon on Thursday morning, concluding the talks on WP4.

Thursday started with the training seminar on Cultural Routes. The very informative session on the Council of Europe, European Institute of Cultural Routes supported by illustrations of successful cultural routes and some guidelines has been introduced and led by Penelope Denu, Executive Secretary, Council of Europe Enlarged Partial Agreement on Cultural Routes Director, European Institute of Cultural Routes and Eleonora Berti.

The next two sessions - before and after lunch - were revolving around digital cataloguing. The catalogue is one of the fundamental contributions of the project to the field and will be used by partners, experts and general public. The Ceti Athena partner surveyed the participants of the meeting on items that they would like to have included in the catalogue, definition of subgroups, characteristics of elements and some functionalities of the cataloguing tool. During the lunch the survey has been analysed and summarized and the findings and conclusions presented to participants after lunch. The results will serve as the basis for the further development of the cataloguing tool.

The scientific committee of the ATRIUM project has been productive as well. It met during lunch on Wednesday and Thursday to discuss manual and other issues.

The day concluded with the guided tour of the Republic square in Ljubljana - one of the case studies that were included in the initial survey and could be experienced first-hand by the partners – and with a pleasant, but working dinner at Ljubljana’s castle.

The last day – Friday – has been dedicated to an on-site experience and study visit of Velenje. The bus has picked up the participants in the morning and transported them to Velenje. Couple of sites in the city have been included in the Survey and the city itself has the specific flair the project is interested in. The meeting

venue has been recently renovated Villa Bianca, with the educational seminar on the Atrium web page and content management system a stroll away, in the Municipality building. Helena Knez and Marko Govek from the Municipality of Velenje (Slovenia) opened the working session welcoming all the participants. During the short stay and the commute between two venues the participants could experience the pulse and the ambient of the town and seen the architecture of the socialist past in situ.

The day’s discussion was focused to dissemination and communication issues (WP2), the participants learned how to manage and add contents to the web site. The dissemination and communication topics have been on the agenda also in the after-lunch session, where some slight modifications to ATRIUM web page have been proposed and the timeframes for next steps settled upon.

The meeting concluded on a positive note with brief discussion on administrative and financial issues with participants saying goodbye till the next meeting in Sofia, Bulgaria.

Why ATRIUM?

The proposal has been generated on the basis of a common will of the project partners to explore the ways of a possible economic valorisation of their “inconvenient” architectonical heritage stemmed from the totalitarian regimes of the XX century, starting from the fundamental assumptions  that neither a cultural route  nor specific cultural-tourism products of niches have  ever been designed around this specific theme.

The main objective is to define & promote a Cultural Route on architectures of totalitarian regimes of the 20th century, as leverage for their economic valorisation. Through ATRIUM, researches, economic studies, documentations & tools will be prepared to submit a specific dossier to the Council of Europe to be acknowledged by it as a European Cultural Route. At present, there are 29 cultural routes in Europe certified by the Council of Europe; none of them is devoted to ATRIUM theme.

What is to be done?

1) identification of case-studies in the areas concerned.  66 case studies (buildings, urban ensembles and foundation towns) have been detected by the project partners  and the National Institute of Immovable Cultural Heritage of Sofia has carried out an analysis on them and has then  issued a transnational survey under the supervision of the Scientific Committee of the project.
2) preparation of a trans-national Manual of wise management, preservation, re-use & economic valorisation of this heritage, (in progress);

3) digital cataloguing of buildings, tangible and intangible items of the epochs concerned, such as photograph archives, films, oral witnesses, furniture, clothing, etc., to adopt ICT for economic valorisation & tourist promotion, intended as a tool of visibility & promotion of the upcoming Cultural Route as well as a source of information and details for researchers, experts, scholars, etc. (in progress);

4) establishment of a transnational & multidisciplinary association for the promotion of the cultural route & its further development;

5) promotion of cultural tourism for economic valorisation of the heritage concerned (including  training of necessary operators), capable of attracting segments of international, especially European, growing cultural tourism demand, & hence to create new services & jobs in the areas involved.
