I Borghi più belli d'Italia

I Borghi più belli d'Italia[a] is an association of small Italian towns of historical interest, that was founded in March 2001 on the initiative of the Tourism Council of the Associazione Nazionale Comuni Italiani [it], with the aim of preserving and maintaining villages of quality heritage. The association holds initiatives such as festivals, exhibitions, fetes, conferences and concerts that highlight the cultural, historical, gastronomic and linguistic heritage, involving residents, schools, and local artists.

It was inspired by its older French counterpart, Les Plus Beaux Villages de France, and is part of the international organization "Les Plus Beaux Villages de la Terre". The admission of any village or town to the club requires of the same the meeting of a number of prerequisites, both structural—such as the architectonic harmony of the urban fabric and the quality of the public and private building heritage—and general, regarding the quality of life in the village itself, in terms of activities and services for the people.
