For a better efficiency of the projects developed by the partners, a framework cultural partnership agreement was established in 2019. From now on, joint actions will be carried out in the village on the occasion of public events (Night of Museums, European Heritage Days, etc.).
At the same time, the members of the Rural Elders' club carry out important research work and restore the historical data of the village. These surveys allow the publication of informative brochures which provide a wonderful complement to the walk on the trail.
