The conference aims to present and discuss activities and strategies promoted by the local institutions, in order to safeguard and promote the cultural resources deployed along the lagoon of Venice.
Arch. Ing. Maurizio di Stefano, presidente ICOMOS Italia and Arch. Francesco Calzolaio, presidente Venti di Cultura:
"We would like to disregard for a moment, "the flower for the plant" (Braudel), to move the focus away from the city to the cultural resources of the lagoon. We would like to enhance what are doing, in this direction, the stakeholders, identifying the wide network of cultural resources (such as environment, museum, productive, tangible and intangible heritage), to establish a system, and make them available to citizens and visitors."
