Discovering treasures with the International Exhibition of Archaeology
“A” as archeology, we talk about “TurismA”; for the first time will take place in Florence the International Exhibition of Archeology 20 to 24 February 2015.
It ‘s the famous magazine “Archeologia Viva” Giunti Editore, who launched the challenge for this international event which is supported by the Region of Tuscany and the Archaeological Superintendence of Tuscany. The aim is to promote archaeological sites, tourism development attaching to them and seize new opportunities for exploration through the use of technologies and interventions with the latest and sophisticated drones, offering new ways of approaching research on the ground.
The International Exhibition of Archaeology will kick off with a party in the Salone dei Cinquecento, a tribute to the Etruscan people who lived in these lands and developed their own civilizations.
The three days of meetings and discussions, film festivals and exhibitions to disseminate new archaeological discoveries and especially finding ways to promote to the public the funds in time and the history of the past have offered.
Waiting for the writer and archaeologist Valerio Massimo Manfredi, who by his presence will surely give more prominence to the event. There will also be Philippe Daverio and Alberto Angela, along with Louis Godart, cultural counselor of the President of the Republic, as well as Paolo Matthiae, the famous discoverer of Ebla, the Syrian city rediscovery in 1975.
This is perhaps the basis for new collaborations, we will try to organize an exhibition of Hellenistic bronzes to be carried out with the support of the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles and the National Gallery in Washington, perhaps in the exhibition rooms of the Palazzo Strozzi.
“TurismA” will also be the door opener for the World Congress of Egyptology which will host more than 700 scholars from around the world in the summer of 2015.
The City of Florence will give prominence to the archaeological excavations carried out in the Palazzo Vecchio, where they were recovered the ancient town of Roman, now a destination for many visitors eager to discover what we have under our feet.
