Today, TSU celebrates its 101st anniversary with the Scientific Seminar “How to make the old city smarter”.
The Seminar concerned development of cultural tourism through new technologies and manifestation of old historical cities in modern context. It aimed at exchange of experience between Georgian and Italian scientists.
“I would like to underline the unique recent cooperation in direction of cultural heritage preservation backed by the Italian Embassy. This day is the part of the series of the seminars dedicated to sharing Italian experience. If we can learn lessons from other countries about presentation of cultural heritage and ensure establishment of the modern technologies at the same time, it is Italy in the list of our best partners. Italy is the home country of the largest UNESCO cultural heritage monuments and the country managing to maintain, promote and preserve cultural heritage simultaneously with tourism development”, - M. Jashi noted.
She spoke about the initiative of the Committee on provision of true historical notes for the tourists about cultural heritage monuments in Georgia.
“In collaboration with historians, we develop the new initiative envisaging the bilingual mandatory notes on the cultural heritage monuments for the tourists to prevent distribution of inaccurate information”.
M. Jashi congratulated TSU students, alumni, academic personnel and administration with the jubilee.
