Preserving Lebanon's Roman historyItalian and Lebanese archaeological restoration experts pooled their abilities this week to preserve Lebanon's UNESCO World Heritage sites. The four day workshop, organized by the Italian Trade Agency and the Italian Association for Art and Urban Restoration (Assorestauro), drew architects and archeologists from around the region. Italian companies specializing in reconstruction projects also participated in the discussion of conservation methods from their homeland and how to apply them to in Lebanon. Thursday's focus was on the "City Site" in Tyre, one of five UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Lebanon, and part of the Baalbeck and Tyre Archaeological Project – an ongoing initiative to restore structures that are significant to Lebanon's cultural history. While experts at this week's conference focused on the preservation of Lebanon's sites, Badawi said honing these methods would also prepare architects for future projects in Iraq and Syria, where UNESCO sites are under threat from ongoing conflicts.
