“ARMENIACA” - THE PROGRAM OF PRESERVATION AND PROMOTION OF ARCHIVES ON ARMENIAN ARCHITECTURAL HERITAGE

The “Armeniaca” project is the result of cooperation of three European partners: the Armenian General Benevolent Union's District of France (France), Centro Studi e Documentazione della Cultura Armena (CSDCA, Italy) and Inside Europe (Belgium) and one partner from Armenia - the Research on Armenian Architecture (RAA). The project aims to digitalize all archives on Armenian historical monuments and create a common database. It started on October 31, 2009 and will end on October 31, 2011, with the major part of the activities taking place in Armenia. The program will help preserve the archives of Armenian historical monuments, improve the archives of the RAA, assemble and expand the data through constant online operations, as well as contribute to the exchange of knowledge and experience with highly qualified international researchers, artists, students, architectures and other specialists. This project has been funded with the support of the European Commission.
