The Ministry of Heritage and Culture and Tourism adheres to the European Heritage Days, promoted in 1991 by the Council of Europe and the European Commission with the aim to promote dialogue and exchange in culture among the European nations. The coincidence of the European Heritage Days with the opening period of the Expo provided an opportunity to structure events around the theme of food. This theme  is always deeply linked to the values %u200B%u200Bof the culture.
As part of this initiative in the castle of Frederick II,a virtual video will be shown. This movie, lasting 20 minutes, will be repeated every hour from 11:00.
