HERITAGE CRIMES & EMERGENCIES – Summer School

Cultural heritage is constantly at the centre of violence and criminal activities. Contrasting them involves thousands of players and counts billions of euros per year. Illicit traffic of cultural heritage, for instance, represent the third largest illegal market worldwide.

The Summer School in HERITAGE CRIMES & EMERGENCIES is an entire week fully dedicated to build awareness on such issues, exploring by a mix of lectures and workshops, the current issues and possible tools for acting on cultural heritage in emergency and criminal context, with a specific attention on its economic dimension.

All activities will be online.
