Thanks to the kind invitation of Dr Guido Meli (Director) and the Centro Regionale per la Progettazione e il Restauro, the 10th International conference of the ICCM will take place in Palermo, Sicily. It will be held at the Albergo dei Poveri, between 20th-26th October 2008, and it will have as its general theme "Conservation: an Act of Discovery". There will be several sub-sections including: a/ cost of maintenance of mosaics conserved in situ; b/ large-scale projects of mosaic and site conservation; and c/ training of mosaics conservators.
As well as the presentations and posters, a full-day excursion to Piazza Armerina and Morgantina, and a half-day visit of the (mosaic) sites of Palermo are being planned. It is hoped that there will also be an optional, full-day excursion to the late Roman villa at Patti and the ancient site of Tindari.
The first circular will be sent to all those on the ICCM address list. For further information, write to Demetrios Michaelides.per ulteriori informazioni vedi: http://www.iccm.pro.cy/events.htm
