Luis Pérez-Prat Durbán and María del Valle Gómez de Terreros Guardiola

ICCROM was pleased to welcome Luis Pérez-Prat Durbán and María del Valle Gómez de Terreros Guardiola, from Spain. Both Visiting Researchers are full professors at the Universidad Pablo de Olavide, Seville.

Their joint research project, funded by the Spanish Government’s Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport, was specifically related to international criteria applied to restoration of archaeological remains and ruined monuments; intentional destruction of cultural heritage, especially in the cases of Mali, Libya, Iraq and Syria; cultural heritage and Holocaust; and protection of ruins included in the World Heritage List. The project aimed to analyse the efficiency of cultural heritage protection regulations, evaluating whether current legislation successfully fulfils its heritage protection objectives.
