2019.2020 Programme
Managing Mediterranean archaeological heritage:
challenges and strategies

International School of Cultural Heritage

The inaugural edition of the International School of Cultural Heritage Programme focuses on the management and enhancement of archaeological sites and museums.
The International School is a permanent laboratory dedicated to foreign professionals and each edition is devoted to a specific geographical area.
In the 2019-2020 edition, the participants were invited from Algeria, Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Palestine, Tunisia, Turkey and Ethiopia as an associated country.
The professionals who applied for the Programme were directly selected by the national institutions operating in this sector in their countries.


With their knowledge, skills and experiences, participants approach the Programme with an “innovation demand” sharing their needs for innovative solutions to apply in their professional work.

The Programme allows them to get to know the best Italian and international practices and to verify whether solutions and methods already successfully tested elsewhere might be adapted to their professional activity.

entry requirements

The Programme is free of charge and the Fondazione contributes to cover participants’ expenses.
The entry requirements are defined by an ad-hoc Regulation for each edition.

For the 2019-2020 edition, the candidates are selected by the national institutions of the invited countries and evaluated by a Commission appointed by the Fondazione.
