The 15th edition of the event took place in Dubrovnik, Croatia, from 22 to 24 September, 2016, gathering a wide scope of heritage professionals: 149 participants from 33 countries and various geographical and working environments. Forty-four laureates awarded in 2015 were featured in a packed three-day programme, representing almost all aspects of present-day best practices.
In addition to being a sensational archaeological discovery, the EU Prize for Cultural Heritage / Europa Nostra Award 2015 laureate, the Nuragic Sculptures of Monte Prama from Sardinia, Italy, presented by Dr Roberto Nardi, may well serve as a paradigm of integrated, dynamic conservation, exhibiting and community engagement. In a short period of time, it has succeeded in dynamising and enhancing the identity of Sardinia and placed its community on the map of desirable destinations, while energising its economic potential.
