18th of April, 2015 / ICOMOS is 50 - let's celebrate
18 April 2015: ICOMOS is 50
The Second Congress of Architects and Specialists of Historic Buildings, held in Venice in 1964, adopted 13 resolutions, the first being the International Charter for the Conservation and Restoration of Monuments and Sites, better known as the Venice Charter, and the second, put forward by UNESCO, provided for the creation of ICOMOS.
18 April 2014 - Celebrate the International Day on Monuments and Sites
Theme for 18 April 2014: "Heritage of Commemoration"
We wish all ICOMOS members and friends a very instructive and rewarding International Day for Monuments and Sites.
Visit the 2014 Events page - ICOMOS Committees and other organisers from over 40 countries have sent us information on their activities, and the number keeps on growing.
If your Committee or organisation did not plan an event this year - make sure you do so in 2015!
