About this lecture
On September 28th Roberto Nardi from Centro di Conservazione Archeologica Roma, had the privilege of delivering the key-note speech at the 2017 Best in Heritage conference in Dubrovnik.
He outlined the outstanding conservation project of the Nuragic Sculptures of Monte Prama in Sardinia in Italy to convincingly demonstrate that that heritage brings not only economic but also social, cultural and environmental benefits.
“Cultural heritage is one of the founding assets of modern civilization, and conservation is an important tool for its development and its dissemination. The Mont’e Prama project has produced a statuary collection of universal interest that today supplies an inedited cultural tourism in Sardinia, generating a new economy based on the culture of a people, for the benefit of local communities, demonstrating that culture is capable of producing not only bread, but much more”.
The Best in Heritage 2017 was organized in partnership with EUROPA NOSTRA and ICOM, with the local partnership of Dubrovnik Museums, the support of the City of Dubrovnik and the Ministry of Culture of Croatia, and with sponsorship from Meyvaert Glass Engineering. The conference is a rare international platform where official, private and civil society institutions & actions meet.
