The International Conservation Center - Città di Roma

As Israel’s premier Institute of Technical Conservation and Historic Preservation, the International Conservation Center – Città di Roma, established in 2005, serves as a place of study for researchers, students, and emerging professionals from Israel and abroad, providing them with unrivaled hands-on conservation experience and field work, taught by professional conservators, architects, archaeologists, and specialists of the Israel Antiquities Authority. Courses, workshops, and other programs reflect and feature Acre’s rich cultural heritage, and encourage economic development for the city’s residents. Situated in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Old City of Acre, Israel, the Center is granted intimate access to a veritable living laboratory for the study and application of practical heritage conservation within the historic living city. The Center operates as a division of the Israel Antiquities Authority under the direct supervision of the Conservation Department. The continued development of the Center is due to fruitful cooperation between the Israel Antiquities Authority and the Cultural Ministry of the Italian Government. In 2009 under the patronage of then Mayor of Rome, Giovanni Alemanno, the Center was the recipient of the prestigious “Dan David” award to commemorate the Italian activities in San Giovanni di Acre during the Middle Ages. This partnership provides the Center access to renowned Italian conservation specialists.
