The project "On the path of the prehistoric cliffs" won the competition announcement “Giovani no profit per il Patrimonio”, promoted by the Presidency of the Council of Ministers, directed at young people to promote the captivating, barely known and extremely precious prehistoric world of Camerota (SA), whose caves, located in the National Park of Cilento, Vallo di Diano and Alburni, are listed by the “UNESCO world heritage sites”. The realization of this project, proposed by the association “Identità Mediterranee” in collaboration with “Europelife”, is also due to the significant partnership with the Municipality of Camerota. But the real question is: What does this project stand for, and why the choice fell on Camerota?
This choice was made since remains of the most ancient human communities have been kept in the caves and in the cliffs of Camerota for thousands of years. These caves, inhabited for the period from 500.000 years ago to 3.000 years ago, have been witness of the unexpected contemporary presence of the Neanderthal Man and the Sapiens.
The secrets of this territory are now available to everybody thanks to the great job done by the members of the project “On the path of the prehistoric cliffs”.
