Italy-Israel: a laboratory in Città Vecchia in Acri

An international workshop on the digital documentation and musealization of the historic buildings of the Old City is underway in the city of Acri. The aim is to familiarize visitors and residents with the architectural sites of the “Citta’ Vecchia”, documented through architectural drawings and three-dimensional models. A feasibility study will also be carried out to turn the old town into an open air museum and showcase the beautiful remains of the districts built at the times of crusades by the Maritime Republics of Venice, Genoa and Pisa.

The initiative will be hosted in the historical building of the International Conservation Center “Citta ‘di Roma” up until Thursday. It was organized by the Shenkar College in Tel Aviv, the Politecnico di Milano and the Mantova UNESCO Chair, in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute of Haifa and with the patronage of the Italian Embassy in Israel.
