SHELTER - Sustainable Historic Environments hoListic reconstruction through Technological Enhancement and community based Resilience

Vai al sito

In recent decades, due to the effects of climate change, cultural heritage is under threat from an ever-increasing number of risks that impose new management challenges. SHELTER, funded under the European research program Horizon 2020, is a 4-year project launched in June 2019, which aims to increase the resilience of cultural heritage and reduce its vulnerability to natural and anthropic risks. To this end, the project intends to develop a new reproducible operating model involving different actors at different scales, promoting integrated planning and adaptive management of heritage through the systemisation of information and the sharing of knowledge.

The project will be validated through the implementation of 5 Open Labs, sites of archaeological and naturalistic interest selected on the basis of the different types of risk to which they are currently exposed.

The Department of Cultural Heritage collaborates on the open-lab dedicated to the archaeological area of Santa Croce, located in the heart of the historic center of Ravenna, in the immediate vicinity of the Basilica of San Vitale and the Mausoleum of Galla Placidia.
