Italian Archaeology Abroad Day
The Day of Italian Archaeology Abroad was held in Rome on May 9, 2023.
The initiative, organized in collaboration with the Municipality of Rome, arose from the desire to manifest the Italian excellence in archaeological research abroad that the Farnesina-funded Archaeological, Anthropological and Ethnological Missions have been conducting for decades on five continents, with the aim of raising greater awareness and attention to such Italian excellence.
In fact, the first Italian Archaeological Mission in Morocco dates back to the end of the 19th century and to date there are 246 active Missions in 66 countries: a system that engages numerous researchers and scholars, both Italian and foreign, and that relies on scientific collaborations between leading Italian research institutions and those of the nations in which Italy operates.
The event was attended by the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Antonio Tajani, the Minister of Culture, Gennaro Sangiuliano, as well as Ambassadors of the countries in which the Missions operate, representatives of the institutional and academic world and 180 archaeological mission directors.
