GENIUS LOCI is an EU co-funded project under the COSME-programme

Its purpose is to draw attention to the heritage of small-scale industrial enterprises, to (re)valuate their heritage significance and to increase understanding and appreciation by tourists and the general public.
Project partners are based in Italy, Spain, Hungary, Malta and Belgium, while E-FAITH (European Federation of Associations of Industrial and Technical Heritage) is offering its expertise and network to the project.


The following sectors have been identified as priorities for the first phase of the project:

  • the traditional fermented drinks industry (beer, wine, cider,…) and the process of distilling strong spirits from these;
  • clay processing industries (bricks, tiles, roof tiles – but also refractory bricks, pottery, drainage pipes, majolica,…);
  • traditional textile crafts (weaving,..) and the production of traditional European textile fibres (e.g. flax, hemp)

The sites and museums that are included in the Genius Loci project will all receive a free INDUSTRIANA label
If you would like to be included in the list, please download and complete the questionnaire

The selections now have started. The first labels will be attributed from the end of October onwards and sent to the addresses of the sites or museums who completed the questionnaire and who have been selected.
There will be between 100 and 150 labels attributed in a first phase.

Candidatures for the first phase are closed now
