Termoli: Two shores, One sea

The two shores (due sponde) of the Adriatic sea have always represented the confrontation between the occidental and oriental civilizations. The Italian shore on one side, with its history so strongly European. The oriental shore on the other side, rich of history, culture, diversity and creativity.

The Adriatic Sea has permitted the encounter and the exchange of ideas, cultures and different traditions of great appealing. The countries facing the Adriatic, the Balkan region and also other cultures that have always been present such as the Greek and the Turkish, can talk and interact in order to develop together a concept of “Adriatic culture”.
