Valore Paese Fari 2015

The project Italian lighthouses restoration project of the State Agency, in cooperation with the Ministry of Defence and the other territorial authorities concerned, it is proposed, in order to enhance them and avoid them from degradation, the reuse of the network of Lighthouses, state-owned assets located in contexts of absolute beauty and full of suggestion. These properties can be recovered and reused also for tourist-receptive purposes, respecting the ecosystems in which they are inserted, or some of the most extraordinary Italian coastal territories. The goal is to enhance these assets starting from an innovative and sustainable entrepreneurial idea at an environmental level, as is already the case in Europe, the USA, Canada and Australia. These countries have long experimented with the lighthouse accommodation model: a tourist formula in a “green” key to support knowledge, development and protection of the territory.

After the success of the 2015 call with which 11 lighthouses were proposed for redevelopment, of which 7 as Good of the State and 4 as Good of Defense, with the award of 9 lighthouses, The State Agency announced that in September concessions up to a maximum of 50 years of other twenty state-owned assets will be put in competition , including coughs, coastal buildings and real headlights throughout Italy.
