Just finished editing the audio file with a (virtual) roundtable conversation between Simona Caraceni, AVICOM member and president of ICOM Italy’s Thematic Committee on Audiovisuals and New Technologies for Museums, and myself, addressing digital archives’ best practices, challenges, and requirements.
Should be out by mid-June in both Italian and English…

Lovely flight back to Dushanbe, today!
Pictures from my workshop - “Soundscape: An Approach for Preserving Intangible Cultural Heritage” - at the National Museum of Afghanistan in Kabul, today (2 April 2013)
Kabul - At the American University of Afghanistan: the campus, the main building, and the library (a beautiful one, by the way!).

Particularly happy, today, about the fact that my presentation to the ROSCCA 2013 Conference will take place in the Stallman Room: “Free as in Freedom”… ;-)
I’ll be speaking about the 2009 and 2012 earthquakes in Italy and the unsatisfying approach to great risks management til now in a presentation running under the title: “Learning from Mistakes: A different Strategy for Cultural Crisis Management in Post-Disaster Areas”.
