Towards the 'International Day of Monuments and Sites' - “Heritage of Commemoration”
Romualdo Del Bianco Foundation, International Institute Life Beyond Tourism and ICOMOS Italy
Florence, 13 April 2014, 10.00 - 13.00
Palazzo Coppini – International Meeting and Study Centre
Via del Giglio, 10
Auditorium al Duomo
 Via de’ Cerretani, 54r
The event anticipates the institutional date of 18 April and is held on the occasion of
Domenica del Fiorentino (Sunday of the Florentine)
in collaboration with
 Municipality of Florence, UNESCO Centre in Florence, Angeli del Bello Foundation
and Academy of the Arts of Drawing
The theme of monuments and sites, including those more complex and diverse forms of heritage places, such as living landscapes, are bearers of the tangible memory of a part of human experience. Today, thanks to the web, these are accessible worldwide through interactive instruments, such as, from Florence, the portal itself, that is aimed to give more opportunities for knowledge and appreciation of cultural diversity.
Through their conservation and visibility they contribute to the communication of values, in their context and in their historic evolution. The theme offers an opportunity to present buildings that were purposefully created with an aim to commemorate an event, a personality, an idea or an experience of the life lived, just like the history of the Romualdo Del Bianco Foundation in Palazzo Coppini itself.
The choice of the theme is also inspired, in part, by the centenary, in 2014, of the beginning of the Great War 1914-1918. The heritage of commemoration assumes a variety of forms: carved inscriptions, mausoleums of outstanding architecture or works of monumental sculpture, more modest elements that reflect vernacular traditions or dedicated landscapes like cemeteries or memorial gardens.
This heritage also comprises elements that have been given a commemorative value, for example, ruins or industrial vestiges accompanied by memorial plates or public squares whose toponymy commemorates a historical event or an individual.
The theme of commemoration is addressed during this day with an excursus of photographic, documentary and video exhibitions held in the place dedicated to the memory of international meetings’ activity organized for more than twenty years.
