On 19th October the European Historic Thermal Thermal Towns Association (EHTTA) celebrated its General Assembly in Salsomaggiore Terme. Mario Crecente presented the pilot project of the Thermal Atlas of Europe to the member spa towns´ delegates.
During his presentation Mario Crecente referred in particular to the abandoned thermal heritage of Europe, defined as "any building or complex of buildings traditionally used for medical purposes employing natural mineral waters for drinking, bathing or other kind of treatments".
