The day will start with greetings from various prominent personalities in the cultural sector, who will share their perspectives, experiences and visions regarding cultural topics of current relevance. Following this, a series of experts will deliver presentations on various topics, including fire protection systems for cultural heritage, protection of archival heritage from fire risk and biological risk, cultural heritage following catastrophic events, and safety, rescue, and restoration activities. The event will also feature an example of innovation in risk management for cultural heritage, the SOS Heritage project.
