Viet Nam – My Son Sanctuary

Cultural archeology is a precious resource in forming collective memory and identity, but it also plays a role in local employment and economics. It is this correlation that has inspired the Politecnico di Milano’s Department of Architecture and Urban to intervene in Vietnam’s Quang Nam province with the objective to strengthen Vietnamese institutions that specializes in the protection of cultural heritage, as well as improve the condition of archeological sites.

This past week the initiative opened a center that specializes in the professional training of archeological restorations. The center opened its doors to a restoration laboratory where local technicians have already started experiments on how to best preserve and conserve ruins. The center aspires to become a place where recent graduates, public servants, professionals, professors, and workers can commit themselves to the preservation of cultural heritage.
