L'Iraq Museum di Baghdad. Gli interventi italiani per la riqualificazione di un patrimonio dell'umanità

L'Iraq Museum di Baghdad. Gli interventi italiani per la riqualificazione di un patrimonio dell'umanità

C. Lippolis, S. de Martino, R. Parapetti, G. Capri, L'Iraq Museum di Baghdad. Gli interventi italiani per la riqualificazione di un patrimonio dell'umanità, apice libri, Firenze 2016


The Iraq Museum in Baghdad is a unique place, not only for archaeologists. It is a window on the past of Mesopotamia and the history of mankind, as it preserves an extraordinary variety of artefacts that go from prehistorical times down to the Ottoman period.

In 2015, many years after the looting of 2003, the Iraqi authorities decided for its reopening. The Italians greatly contributed to the success of the project, as they realized the new outfitting of almost all the ground floor.

The reopening of the Museum is a strong signal that states the importance of History and the necessity of protecting the cultural heeritage, especially in a time of senseless attacks.
