To avoid any possible risk to participants, University of Foggia has decided to postpone the Biennale per l’Educazione al Patrimonio (BEP 2020). At the same time new dates have been decided: October 12th, 13th, 14th. We hope that all registered participants can confirm their participation. For all logistic details, including the reopening of the call for papers, more details will be communicated before this summer.


The Biennial of Heritage Education 2020 (BEP20), the first Conference of its kind in Italy, inaugurates a series of international meetings in which the global scientific community dealing with heritage education, proposes topics for reflection and future research areas.
The conference encourages both research and significant experiences, as well as technological developments and applications supporting heritage education.
