Organized by The Italian Academy of Columbia University in collaboration with AIFIC.
This exhibition is part of “Protecting our Heritage,” a focal topic for the Washington cluster of EUNIC (the European Union National Institutes of Culture). EUNIC considers heritage as a source of identity, learning, and inspiration for present and future generations; this program is implemented with the support of UNESCO and in partnership with a number of prominent institutions, including international organizations, universities, museums, and foundations.
Massimiliano Gatti presents a stunning record of work at renowned archaeological sites including Qatna, Syria, and Nineveh, in the IraqiKurdistan region, where the photographer joined an interdisciplinary research group led by the University of Udine.
His exhibition features recent images from these ancient cities, and from around the Mesopotamian region, as well as Khorsabad, Tell Gomel, Jerwan, the Tigris, and a wall of inscription-bearing stones from the “Unrivaled Palace” of King Sennacherib.
