On 20 November 2023, we were delighted to welcome a group of 13 international media professionals at ICCROM headquarters.  

The group was composed of members of the Foreign Press Association in Italy (L’Associazione della Stampa Estera in Italia), which has around 500 members from over 75 countries.  

The visit's purpose was to further enable the worldwide dissemination of information about ICCROM’s work. 

To get more acquainted with ICCROM, the group heard from Jennifer Copithorne, Partnership and Communication Unit Manager, and Valérie Magar, Programmes Unit Manager, who spoke about ICCROM activities and pressing matters in the conservation field, such as sustainable practices and using traditional knowledge for a better future.  

After the engaging discussion, the journalists explored our world-class conservation library and ICCROM’s institutional archives. The tour was conducted by Lead Librarian Daniela Sauer and Records and Archives Manager Maria Mata Caravaca.

We thank the Foreign Press Association for organizing this fruitful visit and look forward to future collaboration.
