Name: WORKSHOP AND EXHIBITION “OUR PAST, YOUR FUTURE: PROMOTING ARTISTIC AND CULTURAL HERITAGE”
Place: FLAGINI PALACE, VENICE
Date: 29/10/2016 - 30/10/2016
Contact: Fiorella Girardo

The restoration of historical buildings, the reclamation of abandoned industrial sites and of historical and cultural heritage in general, is a complex process that combines different technologies and expertise. Sustainability is the basis for these restorative interventions, drawing on a wide range of knowledge – from architecture to engineering, design and new materials, to mention just a few.

Developing historical, artistic and cultural heritage cannot however be reduced to a simple question of construction or administration. It is a cultural action in and of itself, beginning with our own individual ability to recognise the heritage that surrounds us. To be able to conserve and enhance our cultural assets we first need to educate, and then continue to educate ourselves, progressing by taking on a personal and collective responsibility, from which new themes and pathways for socio-economic development can be developed.

The structured union of safeguarding and growth has been tried and tested with successful results in both Anglo-American and English contexts. In order to compare the differing methodologies and experiences, the Italian Chamber of Commerce for the UK and Valorizzazioni Culturali are organising a two day event focussing on ‘best practices’. On the 29th and 30th October in the Palazzo Flangini in Venice, successful projects will be displayed at the ground floor exhibition in the 17th century building, facing onto the Grand Canal. From 2pm on the Saturday afternoon international speakers will take part in the conference titled “Our past, your future: Promoting artistic and cultural heritage”. Bringing together experts from different sectors, the workshop seeks to construct an exchange for experience in the form of a networking event to take place during Venice’s Biennale Architettura 2016.
