the pillars of society
Archives play an essential role in the development of society, preserving and contributing to its collective and individual memory.
What we do
The preservation and conservation of archives and collections is made possible by their storage in suitable locations or specific sites approved by law.
We spread the best practice culture.
Archives are essential for any intiatives related to cultural promotion.
We develop and support projects that use archives as a basis for cultural and awareness-raising actions.
Prevention measures are the fundamental first step towards the safeguard of the cultural heritage.
Even the smallest prevention actions can avoid major damages.
We promote a practising approach as it is vital to handle emergencies in the most efficient way.
Preparation is the best tool to mitigate and reduce possible damaging.
