The organizers of the Mediterranean Bourse of Archaeological Tourism in Paestum travelled to Tunisia to work with a group of experts on the development of agreements on cultural cooperation with the North African country.
The director of BMTA, Ugo Picarelli, met in Tunisia with the minister of tourism and craft, Selma Elloum Rekik, and the minister of cultural affairs, Mohamed Zine al Abidine, at the invite of Tunisian ambassador to Italy, Moez Sinaoui: at the center of talks were possible cooperation initiatives with the Bourse that every year in Paestum commemorates the deadly attack at the Bardo Museum.
The Bourse’s organizers travelled to Tunisia, according to a statement, with Culture Ministry Undersecretary Dorina Bianchi.
During the meeting in Tunis, Picarelli invited the minister, Selma Elloum Rekik, to the Conference on ”Inter-cultural dialogue as a universal value of identity and cultural heritage:#notforgetting the Bardo museum” which will be organized in cooperation with Unesco and the World Tourism Organization with the participation of the tourism and culture ministries of Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Iraq and Serbia. The Tunisian ministers, in light of a recent reform of cultural heritage, discussed future cooperation concerning twinning initiatives with Roman era-cities, the restoration of artworks, shared experiences on virtual archaeology, excavation work in new archaeological missions.
The Paestum Bourse, to stress the friendship with the Bardo, will invite Hamadi Ben Abdesslem, the tour guide who saved 45 Italians during an ISIS terror attack, escorting them to a safe exit.
