Protecting Cultural Heritage
in an Uncertain Time

At NYU Washington, DC

October 26, 2016 from 9:30AM to 5PM

New York University, in partnership with Friends of Florence and the City of Florence, and in collaboration with the Embassy of Italy and the Italian Cultural Institute, will convene two meetings to commemorate the anniversary of “L’Alluvione,” a flood that ravaged the city of Florence and damaged countless pieces of art of immeasurable value, some irreparably. On the occasion of that commemoration, the two conferences, one in Washington, DC and the other in Florence, Italy will call attention to an equally devastating contemporary challenge to our cultural patrimony: intentional destruction of cultural property for ideological reasons.
