Why Lecce

Heel of Europe, bridge across the Mediterranean Sea

Crossroads of cultures, connection with the South of Europe, Salento is the heel sustaining Europe's future.

Building relationships and being aware of our bordering culture: it is in this spirit that the territory of Lecce and Brindisi brings forward its candidacy, relying on its millennial history as a bridge across the Mediterranean. This rich cultural melting pot, the result of exchanges, meetings and dialogue with the Balkans, the East and South of the world, cast Lecce2019 towards the dream of a new Europe nurtured by relations, plurality, new horizons and prospects. From the 40th parallel, it is possible to reinvent the future and forge a new hub that may transform our Mediterranean sea in the beacon and heart of the Union, thus laying the foundations for a new development concept unveiling great innovation opportunities. Here, a few steps from Greece, Africa and the countries on the Adriatic Sea which are part of a family called Europe, bridges are built to look and move forward, by working on the potentials of an extraordinarily rich territory, and enhancing talents and knowledge to promote a deep change.
