OPHERA is a project co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union

OPHERA project aims to reveal, as a cultural expression, the cultural heritage restoration process currently ongoing  in the territories affected by Central-Italy 2016 erthquake, in Marche Region. The project assumption is the awareness about the need to allow citizens participation and ensure transparency all along the restoration process.

The cultural values embedded in the restoration activities are characterized by a wide range of skills and sometimes by creative acts, normally visible only to operators. Through OPHERA project the partnership aims to foster the cultural exchange between restoration professionals and a wider audience,  sharing at European level the reconstruction experiences developed in Central – Italy regions.

The project envisages the selection of a multidisciplinary team of operators through a public call for applications. In the first phase the team will be trained by means of three workshops to be held in Cyprus, Portugal and Italy, dedicated to the strategic domains of heritage risk prevention - monitoring methods and to the digital technologies applied to cultural heritage; during the second phase the multidisciplinary team will be involved in the organization of two “open-days” of some key restoration sites located in the most impacted  Marche region towns
