Italian Mission in Butrint (Albania)

‘Butrint: Italian and Albanian Project (BIA Project)’.

University of Bologna, Via Zamboni 33, 40126 Bologna (BO), Italy.

The archaeological project has been underway since 2015, led by Prof. Enrico Giorgi. The objective is to analyse, study, and enhance the ancient Butrint, a UNESCO World Heritage Site found within the Albanian National Park of the same name and already the subject of important research in an Italian project in the last century. The research uses integrated methodologies for the study, conservation and enhancement of the Walls, the Acropolis and the Theatre with the Sanctuary of Asclepius.
