New York University, in partnership with Friends of Florence and the City of Florence will convene two meetings to commemorate the anniversary of “L’Alluvione,” a flood that ravaged the city of Florence and damaged countless pieces of art of immeasurable value, some irreparably. On the occasion of that commemoration, the two conferences, one in Washington, D.C. and the other in Florence, Italy will call attention to an equally devastating contemporary challenge to our cultural patrimony: the intentional destruction of cultural property for ideological reasons. This symposium brings together regional actors together with international experts and scholars from the fields of art, conservation and museums, international culture, law and law enforcement agencies and organizations to discuss the challenges and solutions to protecting our cultural heritage.

CONVENERS:
Hon. Dario Nardella, Mayor of Florence
Ellyn Toscano, Executive Director, NYU Florence
Simonetta Brandolini D´Adda, President, Friends of Florence
Tom McIntyre, John Brademas Center, New York University
Michele Marincola, Institute of Fine Arts, New York University
