On the occasion of the meeting in Cagliari, Elisabetta Trenta, of Sudgestaid Scarl has presented a report about SINERGIES AND NEW PERSPECTIVES FOR CULTURAL HERITAGE IN MEDITERRANEAN: ARCHEOMED PROJECT MEETS ARCHEOMEDSITES.

ARCHEOMED thanks ARCHEOMEDSITES for the invitation that is an occasion to open the network activity to the participation of new countries and new sites.

The conference has been an additional validation of the rightness of the approach of the guidelines elaborated by Archeomed for the management of the Archaeological minor sites.

The guidelines highlight the importance of the local community participation in all the phases of identification and implementation of a conservation, maintenance and management plan for archaeological minor sites.

ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITES CAN NOT LIVE EXCEPT IF CONNECTED WITH THEIR TERRITORIES AND COMMUNITIES and every conservation or restoration intervention will be not meaningful if not linked to a valorisation plan that will consider the site in relation with the other resources of the territory.
