Today, July 7, the Forum Terzo Settore held in Rome (in the Fondazione con il Sud headquarters) a seminar dedicated to the Council of Europe’s 2005 Convention on the Value of Cultural Heritage for Society, mainly known as the Faro Convention.
The main theme discussed in this seminar was the role of the Faro Convention as a fly-wheel for cultural policies, the value of cultural heritage to society, citizens’ role in this process and the “heritage communities“, defined by the Faro Convention (art. 2b) as “people who value specific aspects of cultural heritage which they wish, within the framework of public action, to sustain and transmit to future generations“.
Maurizio Mumolo, coordinator of the Culture board of Forum Terzo Settore, said: “we think it is particularly important to examine in depth the Convention, in order to pinpoint the opportunities that the Convention itself offers to the organizations involved in Forum Terzo Settore, with a specific attention to the role of citizens in the process of identification with the cultural heritage.”
“Forum Terzo Settore leads a long-term path of studies and proposals in the field of cultural policies” said spokesperson Pietro Vittorio Barbieri, “considering these subjects very relevant to local development, social inclusion and community wellness.”
The seminar was especially dedicated to associations members of the Forum Terzo Settore and also hosted some experts in the subject, in order to offer various points of view and to shed a clear and broad light on the subject. LabGov coordinator, professor Christian Iaione, was also there as a professional, to add his own expertise to the debate.
Here are some photos from the seminar.
