APPEAL- Regarding Closure of the Italian Inst. for Africa & the Orient (ISIAO)

Posted by: Philippe Frison <>

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

An initiative undertaken in the past few days by the Italian Government
is aimed at closing down the *Istituto Italiano per l'Africa e l'Oriente
(IsIAO)*. To avoid such an eventuality, which would spell the end of an
institution that is unique in Italy and which has been active at the
international level in the fields of archaeology, restoration and
conservation of cultural assets, scientific research and publishing for
over 100 years, we are launching the on-line subscription to an open
letter addressed to the President of the Republic. This letter will be
available on-line by Tuesday 24 June on the web site .

We hereby invite you to kindly sign (name, surname, university/
institution, country) this petition and also to ask your colleagues to
do likewise.

Thanking you in advance, I send you my best regards.
