(AGBU Europe) - After Yerevan, Venice, Milan and Brussels (Tour& Taxis), the exhibition ďArmeniaca,
After Yerevan, Venice, Milan and Brussels (Tour& Taxis), the exhibition “Armeniaca, the pioneers of the study of Armenian architectural heritage” will be presented by AGBU Europe from March 26 to 30, 2012 at the European Parliament in Brussels.

This exhibition was jointly created by AGBU Europe and the Italian organization CSDCA (Centro Studi e Documentazione della Cultura Armena). It is hosted at the European Parliament by MEP Michèle Rivasi (Greens/EFA) in partnership with parliamentarians from different political parties Frank Engel (EPP), Sylvie Guillaume (S&D) and Dr. Charles Tannock (ECR).

It highlights Armenian architecture in a number of countries and tells of the work of a few pioneers who braved the odds, particularly in the second half of the XXth Century, to undertake the inventory and study of an ancient heritage spread over many countries, particularly in modern Turkey, the Caucasus and Middle-Eastern countries.

This event is one of the outcomes of the Armeniaca project which aimed to contribute to the preservation, digitization and promotion of archives dedicated to Armenian architectural heritage. It was created with the support of the “Culture 2007-2013” Program of the European Commission.

The development of the Armeniaca database, together with an interactive website, enables the transmission of knowledge and exchanges between researchers, students, artists or architects at an international level. The database currently includes 250 000 photographs, drawings, scientific studies, maps, monographs and more.

The EC’s and parliamentarians’ support to this project Armeniaca indicates a growing interest for the subject on the part of the European institutions, including an interest in strategies to ensure the preservation and knowledge of an architecture that is of great value yet has suffered considerably in the last century.

“The project is part of AGBU Europe’s work to promote awareness of the need to protect Armenian heritage. Its first event was the conference on Armenian heritage in Turkey organized on 13 November 2008 at the European Parliament in Brussels. Over several years, AGBU Europe has organized meetings, exhibitions and conferences aiming to inform and raise awareness of Armenian heritage among the European Institutions” said Alexis Govciyan, Chairman of AGBU Europe.
