The Art Nouveau European Route is a non-profit association of local governments and non-governmental institutions that have joined together in a collective commitment to develop useful and efficient mechanisms for the international promotion and protection of Art Nouveau heritage.
The Route also seeks to foster communication and exchange between its members to share their experiences in the restoration of monuments, public awareness programmes, fundraising strategies and the development of sustainable tourism.
The Route publishes the coupDefouet magazine, with contents contributed selflessly by its members. It has also published the Art Nouveau European Route book-catalogue, a brief panorama of the best Art Nouveau heritage.
The European Route was established in the year 2000 during its first Plenary Meeting in Barcelona, which was attended by representatives of 46 municipalities and 33 other institutions (museums, foundations, private companies…), and it has been growing steadily since then.
