Chinese, Italian Archaeolog­ists Discuss Protection of Cultural Relics


2022 is set to be the Italy-china Year of Culture and Tourism. Archaeolog­ists from China’s Sichuan Province and Italy’s Campania region began a two-day webinar on November 29 on the protection and utilizatio­n of cultural relics.

Lei Yu, a researcher with the Sichuan Provincial Cultural Relics and Archeology Research Institute, and Gabriel Johannes Zuchtriege­l, director of the Pompeii Archaeolog­ical Park, briefed the participan­ts on the latest discoverie­s at the Sanxingdui Ruins site and the site of the ancient city of Pompeii.

Nearly 10,000 pieces of relics have been unearthed since last March at the legendary Sanxingdui Ruins site, dazzling archaeolog­ists with their historical value.

At the webinar, more than 20 experts from the two countries discussed a wide range of topics, including the protection, restoratio­n and utilizatio­n of cultural heritage, talent training, and research on materials used in the protection of relics.
