The International Centre for the Study of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property (ICCROM) had organized a very interesting webinar, on Thursday 2nd July, in which the sector of cultural Heritage was called to reflect on the actions to be taken to strengthen the role of heritage in sustainable development, in line with the United Nations agenda for 2030.
