Chamber of Commerce: Cosenza, deal with the National Library

(ANSA) - COSENZA, APR. 11 - Culture and historical and documentary heritage can be effective promotional tools of the territory and its products. This is the focus of the agreement signed today by Klaus Algieri, president of Cosenza Chamber of Commerce and Rita Fiordalisi, director of Cosenza National Library. The deal's goal is ''to enhance mutual appreciation of our book heritages, in order to encourage the historical analysis of the local manufacturing sector, with the aim of pooling resources and skills in the community's interest''. ''The wealth of knowledge which the National Library preserves - president Algieri said - is a valuable resource for the dissemination of our typicality. Documentary research allows to reconstruct all the ties between the territory and each of its products, making it possible to associate with the latter a 'cultural passport' that actually facilitates promotion and exports, with positive effects not only on the turnover of individual companies, but also in terms of territory awareness and tourist, cultural and commercial attractiveness. For this reason, the Chamber will disclose its book and documentary heritage, made up of more than 3,000 volumes, and this heritage will be classified with the help of Cosenza National Library and will be made accessible for all as soon as possible''. ''The two entities - statement - are planning to trigger interesting territorial animation initiatives, cultural events, as well as tours, linked to the promotion of all the resources of goods and places that foster close cooperation between institutions. The goal is to schedule training activities and enhance social, economic and tourism development. We are also planning the organisation of cultural events, through the involvement of educational institutions within school-work transition programmes, and we intend to digitise, if possible, all the texts and documents found in the library of the Chamber of Commerce, in accordance with the requirements of the National library''.(ANSA).
