The project, active since 1986 and led by Prof. Candida Felli, involves research, monitoring and safeguarding of the archaeological sites of the Jazr Plain (Idlib NW) and Tell Afis, a fortified centre from the late Chalcolithic age (4000-3500 BC) and Bronze Age (3000-1200 BC), identified by the Aramean capital Hazrek (9th and 8th century BC) and the Neo-Assyrian capital of Hatarikka (7th- 5th century). This includes the publication of results, the organization, arrangement and restoration of materials in the Idlib museum, the museumization of the Tell Afis site.
