Institutional Support


In 2015 Brazil expressed the interest in presenting in the coming years the candidacy of a set of 19 historical fortifications to world heritage.
This initiative triggered a discussion about the current demands in the management of this type of cultural heritage that can be decisive for the preservation not only of the strong involved, but of all those existing, still built, in ruins or as archaeological, throughout the national territory.
In the main intention of collaborating with public and private agents, the LTDS and ICOFORT, in association, propose this event, whose discussions and results can help managers, institutions, companies and researchers in future actions in favor of Brazilian fortifications and in the consolidation of the military tourism market as a segment in Brazil.
