    MAIN LANGUAGES:
    Italian, Spanish and English

    PRESENTATION:
    The characters of the popular traditions, based on the disguises, have origins in ancient festivals very different among them. In these artistic manifestations there is a large opening to human sentiments and thoughts; these are expressions of meetings where converge all peoples with their social, ethnic, economic, political and religious differences. In these traditional celebrations the daily life is built by the imagination, by the game and all this allows a continuous enrichment and exchange of cultural knowledge. These urban festivals allow to build art forms often unique.
    Among these artistic events we identify the Carnival, a city festival, that in the West it has origin in ancient ceremonies of the Greek and Roman period. These customs are survivals of ancient purification rituals. However today the Carnival has become a symbol of meetings that take place in public spaces of the city where you could meet people with different cultural backgrounds. All this allows you to enjoy and to share, in the large festival with interesting diversities, the traditional and artistic expressions of the different cultures.
    The 1st International Symposium Life Beyond Tourism, Dialogue among cultures. Carnivals in the worlds, is going to take place in Florence and Viareggio (Italy) in February 3-7, 2016. The Symposium offers a reflection on the international Value of Intangible Heritage as defined by UNESCO, or rather practices, representations, knowledge and techniques that must facilitate a strong sense of cultural identity (UNESCO, Declaration of 2003) among the communities, groups and individuals.
    This Cultural Heritage is showed in different sectors of human activity: art, economics, sociology, anthropology, architecture, engineering, etc.. So the Carnival plays an important role in the cultural world because it proposes to protect an important traditional heritage and to strengthen the cultural and social integration between East and West.
    Another very important aspect is the education to the popular culture, a fundamental educational process for the new generations to promote knowledge of the history and the value of their local heritage.

    ACADEMIC FINALITY OF THE SYMPOSIUM:
    The fundamental finality of the 1st International Symposium Life Beyond Tourism is launching a biennial event in Florence for to analyze the issues related to the urban festivals and masquerades, festivals that take place in different methods and in different countries of the world. During this Symposium will be studied and deepened new topics related to these cultural urban events and will be favored a large debate to a profitable intercultural dialogue.
    The 1st International Symposium on the Carnival was born with the scope to deepen the knowledge of different and multicultural expressions that occur in public and urban spaces for the cultural dialogue, for the integration and the respect for differences.

    FINALITY OF THE ORGANIZATION:
    To promote a space for intercultural dialogue between the scientific community, the local community and future generations, with the finality to share the different methods of understanding the tradition of the Carnival around the world.

    METHODOLOGY:
    The Symposium will be realized with individual and selected presentations. These presentations will be accompanied by colorful pictures – very representative – graphics, video, music media with the scope to reconstruct the environments and the sensations of the individual Carnivals in the world.
    It follows an interdisciplinary debate. It can also show videos, documentaries, books and documents on the subject of the Carnival.
    The program of the Symposium will be disseminated between the main academic institutions and the universities around the world.

    The Digital Future of World Heritage Symposium. 2 – 4 April 2014 Rome, Italy 

    The Digital Future of World Heritage

    A symposium on blended scholarship and management in the new millennium

    April 2 – 4, 2014 Rome, Italy

    http://dharma.nd.edu/index.php/news-events/forum-symposium-2014

    Ground-breaking methods of documentation and interpretation of World Heritage Sites is the theme for a collaborative Symposium presented by the University of Notre Dame and the UNESCO World Heritage Center (WHC), in collaboration with Soprintendenza Speciale per i Beni Archeologici di Roma and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Scholars in Sciences and Humanities are trying to uncover a layer of evidence from the past, using the technology of the future, in order to make sense of and reveal a particular reality. With the convergence of both traditional and new technologies, we are able to reveal a greater depth to the story that history has left behind.

    The Symposium will focus on the need for state-of-the-art tools and technologies that transform the way we think about documentation, interpretation, archiving and preservation for future generations. Technology transfer in the Humanities is still in an exploratory phase. Engaging University faculty from other fields with expertise in established technologies, such as georegistration, land and subsurface mapping/imagery, remote sensing, cartography, accelerator mass spectrometry and finite element methods, has the potential to inspire innovative methods of documenting heritage and furthering research on site. The Symposium will also be a platform to present various techniques of merging scientific research with site management, and the benefits of such joint approaches to the improvement and management of World Heritage Sites. Government and State agencies involved in running sites will be introduced to the latest techniques! in documentation, analysis and historic research to study and maintain sites.

    Space is limited. Please register early to ensure your spot at The Digital Future of World Heritage Symposium 2014, Rome, Italy. Registration includes all meeting materials, reception, lunches, and refreshments.

    Fees

    Registration: $50

    Faculty/Student registration: $0 (please note that without registration you will not have access to any material)

    CALL FOR PAPERS – Preventive and Planned Conservation Conference 2014 (5-9 May 2014, Monza and Mantua. Italy) DEADLINE: 15 February 

    Preventive and Planned Conservation Conference 2014
    5-9 May 2014, Monza and Mantua (Italy)

    Abstract Deadline : Until February 15, 2014

    Call for papers

    http://precomos.org/index.php/news/preventive_and_planned_conservation_conference_2014_-_monza_and_mantua_ital/

    PPC 2014 seeks a diverse and comprehensive program covering more areas of Preventive and Planned Conservation of Built Cultural Heritage. This conference is one of the communication and dissemination actions implemented within Cultural Districts “Monza and Brianza” and “Le Regge dei Gonzaga”.
    “Cultural Districts” project, started in Lombardy Region in 2010, gives the opportunity for testing innovative approaches and tools and for rethinking the roles played by Built Cultural Heritage for local development.
    You are invited to share your experience and your papers with academicians, researchers, public officers and professionals.

    Conference aims

    The conference aims at presenting an international overview of Preventive and Planned Conservation strategies. Theoretical reflections and best practices will be shown in order to highlight potentialities, gained advantages and difficulties encountered in the different steps of the process (planning, design, execution and management).
    Preventive and Planned Conservation, that is giving priority to the risk assessment and to the mitigation of decay causes, is a management strategy based on a long run vision and on a virtuous integration between conservation and valorization.
    Care of built cultural heritage is an important commitment and investment, which has to be aimed at the production of value, meant both as economic and cultural. For this to happen, conservation has to be included among the management activities.
    The Conference topics include a wide range of activities designed to facilitate the exchange of expertise, experience, and resources with colleagues. These include keynote and invited talks, full and poster presentations, panels and round table discussion sessions.

    All selected papers will be published in Conference proceedings. No fee is required.

    Conference topics

    1. Integration between conservation and valorisation processes

    As conservation is understood as a process the point of view shifts from present time to future and widens the boundaries to economic planning, to cultural activities design and to impact evaluation of conservation and valorization.
    According to this vision, conservation and valorization cannot be considered as two different activities, in charge to different subjects, but must be integrated within the property management.
    Which valorization methods are coherent with this premises?
    Is it possible to pinpoint best practices which consider conservation as the premise for a valorization able to create new cultural production?
    Last remark coming from this integration process is related to the role of local cultural policies within a broader national overview.
    Which role valorization can play in the frame of public policies?

    2. Economic and social aspects

    As the focus shifts from restoration to a long run conservation process there should be several economic and social effects. First of all prevention, monitoring and maintenance should be able to limit and postpone more expensive and invasive interventions with a scarce advance expenditure. Are there figures or evidences to confirm (or contradict) this statement?
    A second point is related to positive effects (externalities) generated by conservation activities in the local context, coming from the creation of new jobs or at least from the opportunity of a more stable and qualified occupation for operators.
    Which are cultural and economic conditions allowing a real recovery of traditional skills? How does ability to use innovative techniques affect workers/professionals qualification? Which policies for development of new skills and creations of new jobs?
    A third question is referred to the role which the value system attached to BCH can play in the enhancement of local cultural capital and to conditions able to affect positively regional development (local community involvement, collaboration among stakeholders, networking …).

    3. Seismic risk protection

    In 1983 Giovanni Urbani pointed out the need for cultural heritage protection against the risk of earthquakes.
    Unfortunately many factors still make difficult the implementation of broad programs for strengthening historic buildings, and many mistakes are still made because of the lack of knowledge about the seismic behavior of historic structures.
    The assessment of seismic risk is nowadays required as a priority as well as the dissemination of best practices in diagnostics and construction engineering.
    The conference will not deal with the themes of assessing seismic damages or with restoration and reconstruction, but just with policies and technologies which could make prevention feasible.

    4. Methodologies and tools for prevention and maintenance

    In a long run vision Conservation of Built Cultural Heritage encompasses execution of scheduled checks, preventive actions and few interventions.
    Drawing up operational procedures for care activities needs specific precaution in order to fine-tune the connection between indirect interventions (methods of inspections, monitoring of environmental conditions, use restrictions…) and direct interventions.
    Are there limits up to which we can consider direct interventions as prevention?
    Advantages coming from a large scale strategy (set of buildings, historic towns, cultural landscapes,…) could be an interesting subject as well: are the produced economies of scale able to balance the risk of losing specificity?

    5. ICT for the enhancement of conservation process

    Information technology plays a very important in planned conservation. More advanced trends aim at integration and interoperability through all the phases of the process (program, design, execution, documentation, management, maintenance…). New tools are able to combine data referring to different disciplines: for instance BIM technologies allow several operators to share a dynamic building model, enabling easy connections among different software and an easier dialogue among professionals.
    The availability of tools of this kind may be very useful to spread planned conservation practices.
    Which scenarios will open up in the future thanks to technological developments?
    The conference will include examples of ICT use in different phases (survey, design, monitoring, data management…), focusing on the applications which support conservation as a long-run process.
