EWT has planned its annual seminar and AGM in Ravenna this autumn.The programme includes opportunities for lively debate on issues relevant to all walled (and many other historic) towns. Ravenna itself is walled but famed principally as the World Heritage City of Byzantine Imperial power in Italy
with churches and stunning mosaics to show off. On Italy's northern Adriatic coast, the city is accessible from both the Veneto, Aemilia Romana and the Marche. Bologna airport is well connected to Northern Europe and Austria, Slovenia and Croatia are close by.

A particular feature of the meeting will be  a discussion of how links and regional networks of walled towns can both contribute to tourism and marketing and allow effective exchanges of best practice and experience. Among those links and networks being invited are Le Citta Murate Del VenetoSlovenian Historic TownsLower Austria walled towns linkNorth Wales Walled Towns LinkIrish Walled Towns NetworkBasque and Northern Spanish walled and historic towns.
See the 'Links and networks' page on this website for further examples.
