Monumentum 1967-1984 is now available for free Foto

We have the pleasure of inviting you to consult the ICOMOS web-site. The complete text of ‘Monumentum’, the first journal published by ICOMOS between 1967 and 1984, which consists of more than 270 articles, is now available for free on this site. See…

The first issue of this specialised international journal came out in 1967. Piero Gazzola, the President of ICOMOS in 1967, wrote in the page of introduction of the first issue : Foto

«’Monumentum’ has in view to express the purpose of ICOMOS and the ideals inspiring it. It presents itself as the instrument to voice our aims and programmes and, at the same time, it may lead to a better understanding both of the universal value represented by the patrimony of monuments and of the culture reflected in this patrimony».

We would be extremely grateful if you could let people around you know about this important source of information on conservation and restoration of heritage. It is also a useful tool to raise awareness about ICOMOS.

This project was carried out with the help of Béatriz Rosillo Nino, documentation centre intern from the Salamanca University (Spain), thanks to the European programme Leonardo da Vinci.

We thank Béatriz for her excellent digitalization work.

We hope you will find these documents interesting.
