Symposium on Florence flood

From: Rebecca A. Rushfield <wittert<-a>
Date: Friday, November 18, 2005
On Thursday and Friday November 2-3, 2006, Villa la Pietra, New York
University with the Institute of Fine Arts Conservation Center will
host "Conservation Legacies of L'Alluvione", a two-day symposium in
Florence, Italy that will bring together more than a dozen of the
Americans, Britons, and others who participated in the rescue and
restoration effort after the Florence flood of November 1966. They
will attempt to construct a definitive history of what took place
and will consider how the lessons learned from the Flood recovery
effort have been applied in disasters as recent as Hurricane
Katrina. The symposium will begin a week of meetings, lectures,
exhibits, tours, and events commemorating the flood. A formal
announcement of the program and speakers will be made at the
beginning of 2006. For further information, contact
