Preserving smaller, lesser-known cultural heritage sites that do NOT have the benefit of UNESCO’s world heritage status. This is the focus of the second annual “Unlisted” Conference taking place this weekend in Rome, Italy. Hosted by the American Institute for Roman Culture and the Italian Ministry of Culture, the conference brings together cultural heritage and archaeology experts from around the globe to discuss new and innovative ways to preserve such endangered archaeological sites.
Friday, March 23rd, will feature presentations and roundtable discussions and Saturday, March 24th, a guided visit to the Villa of the Quintilii and the bath complex at Capo di Bove. As a ground-breaking and driving force in the preservation of these smaller and lesser-known sites, SPI looks forward to contributing to and learning from the dialogue!
We will be live tweeting from the event both Friday and Saturday, so make sure to follow us @SPInitiatve and #UNLST2012 for updates!
The event will also be live-streaming from 9:30am – 12:30pm EST Friday, March 23rd. Click here for more details.
