For those interested in exploring the other sections of Heritage and Interculture in Italian, here is a brief description of the site structure:

Strumenti (Tools)
This section aims at providing professionals from different institutional contexts with tools for developing their theory and practice:

  • Bibliography (an indicative selection of publications on subjects ranging from heritage policies in multicultural societies to cross-sectoral partnerships and intercultural mediation, with a prevailing focus on Italian literature)
  • New publications
  • Documentation (policy documents, declarations, conventions and recommendations, charters, ministerial guidelines, regional laws…)
  • BA, MA and PhD Dissertations
  • On-line resources
  • A “project form” intended to provide operators not only with a structure for describing their work and carrying out self-evaluation, but also with a useful “check-list” while in the process of developing the project

Approfondimenti e testimonianze (Topics in focus)
In this section we invite experts, practitioners and participants in intercultural education projects to share their experience and exchange their views on topics of particular interest

Formazione (Training)
