The Julian Alps between present and future: the Fusine lakes
Start date: Sep 30, 2003, End date: Jun 29, 2006 PROJECT  FINISHED 

This project is part of a wider integrated project called The Julian Alps between present and future. It envisages specific initiatives in the cross-border area comprised among the municipalities of Tarvisio and Resia (in Italy) and of Kranjska Gora and Bovec (in Slovenia), the publication of information material in two languages as well as the setting up of a Work Group of experts from the various participating bodies, who will have the task of assessing the progress of individual sub-projects. This initiative aims at re-launching tourism and consolidating the local economy in the cross-border area of the region, through the adoption of specific and integrated actions in the fields of high altitude, naturalistic, educational and rural tourism, by enhancing the local resources and maintaining the typical features of the area. Specifically, the project focuses on the Fusine Lakes district (Lower and Upper lake) to renovate the routes around and between the two lakes, and to build a car park and toilet facilities. In particular, part of the trail around the Lower Lake will be renovated and equipped to be accessible also to the disabled. In order to enhance the environmental morphology of the wooded area between the Fusine Lakes and the village of Ortigara, it is also envisaged to upgrade the service trail to Fontanafredda. The renovation of the access infrastructure, with the creation of a resting area near the protected area, makes the area accessible also for tourist and naturalistic purposes.
