squareFORMARE, EDUCARE E COOPERARE:
L'ATTIVITÀ DI FABIO MANISCALCO
E L'OSSERVATORIO PER LA PROTEZIONE
DEI BENI CULTURALI IN AREA DI CRISI

Mariarosaria Ruggiero Maniscalco

 

Fabio Maniscalco, archeologist, is especially known for his involvement in the field of conservation of cultural heritage in conflict-affected and risk areas. Through his studies and his numerous publications he maintained that cultural destruction is an underestimated war weapon. He effected aids and plans for the salvage of the cultural heritage on the “field” along with the local communities and national institutions in war-affected areas; he ideated and published the series of monographic studies «Mediterraneum» and created the on-line magazine «Web Journal on Cultural Patrimony», to provide a multidisciplinary approach to the subject and give speed to the scientific communication. He taught us that protecting and preserving mean not only studying and informing, but essentially forming, educating and cooperating and through the Observatory for the Protection of Cultural Heritage in Risk Areas he took this issue from a theoretical to a practical level.
