An EU co-funded project under the COSME-programme aims to draw attention to the heritage of small-scale industrial enterprises, to (re)valuate their heritage significance and to increase understanding and appreciation by tourists and the general public.
Project partners are based in Italy, Spain, Hungary, Malta and Belgium, while E-FAITH (European Federation of Associations of Industrial and Technical Heritage) is offering its expertise and network to the project.
The following sectors have been identified as priorities for the first phase of the project:
• the traditional fermented drinks industry (beer, wine, cider,…) and the process of distilling strong spirits from these;
• clay processing industries (bricks, tiles, roof tiles – but also refractory bricks, pottery, drainage pipes, majolica,…);
• traditional textile crafts (weaving,..) and the production of traditional European textile fibres (e.g. flax, hemp)
The sites and museums that are included in the project will all receive a free INDUSTRIANA label. If you would like to be included in the list, please download and complete the questionnaire (
