The Bilateral research project Italy-Georgia “Technology-Enhanced Strategies for Heritage study & valorization” has been founded for the two-years period 2021-2022, in the framework of the scientific and technological cooperation agreement between the National Research Council of Italy (Cnr) and Shota Rustaveli National Science Foundation (SRNSF) of Georgia.
Presented as part of the “Human and social sciences, Cultural Heritage” disciplinary area, the project “Technology-Enhanced Strategies for Heritage study & valorization”, co-directed by Daniele Ferdani from the Institute for Heritage Sciences (Ispc) of the National Research Council of Italy (Cnr) and George Partskhaladze from the Georgian National Museum (GNM), brings together a multidisciplinary group of scholars, scientists, and researchers coming from the two institutions.
The Bilateral project is developing activities related to museum environments, landscape valorization and local and national storytelling starting from the Vani archaeological site, which is the principal fieldwork of Italian and Georgian collaboration.
On the 23rd of June a webinar, from 11.00 to 15.00 CET time, the Cnr-Ispc and the GNM will present the public the project pipeline, data collected until now and the work to be conducted on the archaeological site at the beginning of July in occasion of the Team field trip.
The interdisciplinary of Heritage Science reflects the diversity of heritage itself, and especially for future Italian-Georgian projects, knowledge and skills are necessary from many different fields of expertise; it is only through such collaboration that a broader societal impact can be ensured.
