HOMEE project research results

The HOMEE international research project, which aims to analyse the risks and benefits organizing mega-events in historic cities, presents the first results of the research during the 5th Heritage Forum of Central Europe. One of the afternoon sessions of the Forum, entitled "Discussing the Opportunities and Threats of Organizing Mega-Events in Historic Cities" is entirely devoted to the issues of mega-events and their consequences for cities rich in cultural heritage resources. 

After the introductory lecture, "Mega-events, heritage and city: reflections on Matera of the European Capital of Culture 2019" by Prof. Franco Bianchini, the results of case studies (the Milan Expo 2015,Wrocław 2016 (ECOC), Hull 2017 UK City of Culture, and Paphos 2017 (ECOC)) will be presented. Then, together with the project partners and invited experts we will talk about the cities presented, aiming to create recommendations for future host cities.
The early results of the project research are now available – you can read the summary of case studies [link] and the results of the literature review [link].
