The Summer School on Post-Conflict Recovery is a special training programme that Fondazione Santagata organises in collaboration with ICCROM (International Centre for the Study of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property). It aims to provide fundamental tools to plan and design forms of intervention in post-conflict scenarios, with a special focus on the role of cultural heritage.
Countries that are facing or have faced conflict deserve particular attention when it comes to their cultural heritage: it not only needs protection but can also play a fundamental role in supporting recovery in a post-war scenario. By safeguarding and giving new life to it, through a joint effort of local and international professionals from various backgrounds, cultural heritage can promote positive change within a post-conflict scenario and inspire fruitful synergies that transcend the boundaries of geographical borders and step into a newly formed community, bonded by cultural heritage and dedicated to protecting it and using its full potential.
The Summer School on Post-Conflict Recovery aims to support this process by offering an occasion for professionals from various countries and paths to exchange knowledge and experiences while at the same time acquiring important tools of intervention in delicate scenarios. This objective will be pursued through the exchange of ideas and experiences, case studies and classroom activities on assessment, design and planning for recovery.
The Summer School on Post-Conflict Recovery is a project ideated and promoted by Fondazione Santagata for the Economics of Culture in collaboration with ICCROM (International Centre for the Study of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property).
