On the initiative of the Municipality of Ancona and ANCI (Italian National Association of Municipalities) and with the approval of the “Charter of Ancona “ on 30th of April 1999 the Forum of Adriatic and Ionian Cities was constituted in Ancona. This association brings together the cities of the 7 countries of the Adriatic-Ionian Basin: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Greece, Italy, Montenegro and Slovenia.

The Forum aims to build and develop the economic, social, environmental and cultural heritage of the Adriatic and Ionian cities and to collaborate on European integration and enlargement.
