LYNX Summer School "Italian Hours and American Days of Cultural Heritage"

6 June 2022 to 8 June 2022

Understanding and Managing Cultural Heritage across the Atlantic

LYNX - Center for the interdisciplinary Analysis of Images Summer School 2022

IMT School for Advanced Studies Lucca is launching a Summer School that aims to deeply analyze and compare the main legal and managerial challenges that characterise the protection and acknowledgement of contemporary art and cultural heritage in Italy and in the United States.

The Summer School has two main objectives:

  • The first is to create a program addressing cultural heritage and art law issues between Italy and the U.S. to improve and strengthen cultural ties between art and cultural heritage professionals, and, by extension, Italian and American publics, in both countries. 
  • Second, the School aims to take a case centered approach, using the city of Lucca and its surrounding museums, cultural institutions, and heritage brands, to showcase the myriad of dilemmas and challenges for cultural heritage law to both American cultural heritage professionals unfamiliar with this cultural context and Italian cultural heritage professionals who may not have had such unprecedented access before.

The application deadline is April 22, 2022.
