16 March. Rome International School presents a conference in Italian by archaeologist Paolo Matthiae, the first in the school's lecture series linked to its exhibition Rescuing our past to build our future, on Thursday 16 March at 15.00.
Prof. Matthiae is celebrated for discovering an ancient city and an entire civilisation: Ebla in Syria, where he oversaw 47 archaeological digs between 1964 and 2010. The theme of his talk is on archaeology in areas of crisis in the Middle East. How much at risk is the archaeological heritage of the Middle East? What is being done and what can the civilised world do to stop barbaric acts? Prof. Matthiae states: "Italy will always be on the front-line to fight against the destruction of the historical heritage of countries like Syria and Iraq".
