TRIPOLI – An Italian-Libyan working group was set up yesterday in Tripoli to safeguard the archaeological heritage of Libya.
The working group is prompted by the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord (GNA) and the Italian Roma Tre University.
During the ceremony, Head of GNA’s Department of Antiquity Mohamed Faraj expressed his gratitude for “the Italian archaeologists who have never abandoned us and who, even in a precarious situation, continue to maintain a constant presence in our country”.
Luisa Musso, professor of Roman archaeology at Roma Tre and dean of Italian archaeologists in Libya, emphasized the importance of “Eni and the Fondazione Mediterraneo Antico, which is actively involved in the recovery and preservation of Villa Silin and in the cooperation projects Castello Rosso and Musei della Tripolitania.”
