Moldovan Agency for Inspection and Restoration of Monuments inaugurates its seat
The development of institutional and professional capacities to ensure the effective safeguarding of cultural heritage, in compliance with relevant European and international standards, represents one of the main challenges identified by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Moldova for the achievement of its mission, and one of its priorities for international cooperation. In accordance with this underlying objective, a project was launched in 2010 in cooperation with the UNESCO Venice Office and with the generous contribution of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs - Cooperazione Italiana, to enhance the capacities of the recently-established Agency for the Inspection and Restoration of Monuments, and to support its operational activities.
The official ceremony inaugurating the new headquarters of the Agency for Inspection and Restoration of Monuments of the Ministry of Culture took place on 12 December in the presence of Ion Stefanita, Secretary-General of the Agency, UNESCO representatives, Yolanda Valle-Neff, Director of the UNESCO Venice Office, and Matteo Rosati, Deputy Head of the Venice Office Culture Unit.
