  3. Smart city and heritage conservation by means of modern building technologies

We believe that World Heritage Sites represent a great strategy for getting people of different cultures together and for exercising dialogue among numerous cultures, so the symposium is aimed is to open a platform where to get together THEORY & PRACTICE in order to contribute to the development of dialogue among cultures under the main topic Heritage for Intercultural Dialogue on the Planet we all share.
