  • Description: Summary: The ERDF Operation Programme for Puglia Region through its dedicated Axis (Axis IV) specifically addressing the ‘Enhancement of natural and cultural resources for attraction and development’ and two Lines of Activity within Axis VI (“Competitiveness of productive systems and employment”), allocated Euro 451 million for operations in the fields of tourism and culture. This comprises about 10.7% of the total value of the programme. The heart of Puglia’s strategy on tourism and culture is based on the strengthening of regional competitiveness through the closer coordination (‘valorisation’) of the different components of regional and local attractiveness, together with the setting up of specific new participative models of governance in the two sectors. The underlying rationale of the ERDF strategy for culture and tourism comprises the following specific aspects.
    Summary: For culture, the rationale is based upon addressing the market failures which typically characterize the production and consumption of cultural goods; enhancing the attractiveness of places; promoting culture as a place-branding and tourism attractor; strengthening the positive socio-economic effects associated with cultural goods and activities; and stimulating the role of culture in generating employment and building competitive advantage. For tourism, the rationale is based upon reducing seasonality via tourism promotion; promoting a more equal distribution of tourism development and destination competitiveness by stimulating a more widespread growth of tourism including in less popular areas and the marketing/promotion of less developed tourism products; and stimulating and supporting employment and sustainable economic growth. The Puglia Region government is the ERDF ROP Managing Authority (MA).
    Summary: To implement specific interventions relating to the various different ROP Axes, a series of Intermediate Bodies were established. Of these, Puglia Sviluppo SpA is the company house in the Puglia region that acts as an Intermediate Body for the management of business incentives, including those most relevant to this study delivered through Axis VI with regard to Lines of Action 6.1.9 and 6.1.10.
