As work continues on the rehabilitation of various cultural sites under the ‘EU for Culture’ project implemented by UNOPS in close partnership with the Ministry of Culture, a meeting was organized with cultural heritage professionals to discuss the conservation and revitalization proposals of interventions for the first 6 cultural heritage sites.

The UNOPS team shared the restoration proposals of the Venetian Tower and Hammam in Durrës, the Ethnographic Museums of Kruja and Kavaja, the National Puppet Theatre and Kurcaj Bridge and exchanged perspectives about the proposed interventions with the experts present at the meeting.

The work will start in the upcoming months and all project sites will undergo several intervention phases, starting from the restoration and conservation of the fabric, interpretation, cultural heritage management, business planning and disaster risk management.
