Event promoted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs – Mediterranean Observatory
Rome, The Farnesina, 2-4 December 2004
The Centro Scavi di Torino, in view of its commitment in the work of safeguarding, recovery, study and training in Iraq, took part in the event “Shores 2004”, promoted by the Mediterranean Observatory of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to make the importance of the Mediterranean better known as the cradle of diverse civilizations and a crossroads of cultures. The event consequently represented an opportunity for meetings, exchange of views and reflection, creating a forum for dialogue between different cultures, at this time more necessary than ever. Cooperation for the preservation and promotion of the cultural heritage, the central theme of the opening day, 2 December, prompted the Centro Scavi to illustrate its work, which has been constant and almost continuous in these last 40 years in Iraq, by means of an exhibition of panels outlining the main activities of the Centro in the region.
