The City Council of Mazarrón, throughout the last International Tourism Fair (FITUR) of Madrid, has maintained contacts with the national and international representatives of the Association 'Route of the Phoenicians' in the face of future collaborations in different areas related to the development and cultural promotion, as well as with the exchange of experiences that can be used to enhance the cultural resources that the different member members of the association have.
Thus, on the first day, Mayor Mazarrón, Gaspar Miras, held a meeting with Antonio Barone, director of the 'Route of the Phoenicians' project at European level, and with Paolo Ponzio, member of the Humanities Department of the University of Bari, where they discussed ways of collaboration of interest for the session such as support for the future of the Phoenician Ship of Mazarrón, or different proposals to enhance the cultural heritage of the municipality.
The possibility of collaborating in the 'Tuna Route' project was also discussed and the initiative to develop a technical conference of the association in Mazarrón throughout this year was valued.
Both Antonio Barone and Paolo Ponzi were present at the presentation of Mazarrón at FITUR, being able to contemplate the images of the Phoenician wreck and its interpretation center that were shown in the promotional video.
In addition, on Friday, the City Council of Mazarrón, through its technical staff, attended the presentations of the members of the association at FITUR such as the Presentation of the 'Atlantic Route of Los Fenicios' and the signing of the 'Declaration of Bari' by the Xunta de Galicia.
