Cultural Preservation in Tuscany

Culture has flourished for centuries on the Italian peninsula. The historical heritage from a bygone era acts as a source of culture identity and revenue for a country still battling recent economic crises. However, treasure hunters and looters have endangered many of Italy’s ancient artifacts. 

During this CLS Europe Trip, students will be serving the community of Livorno in Italy in the fight against treasure hunters and looters, who have been ransacking monuments and artifacts from the area. They end up selling Italian heritage for a quick profit, alienating locals from their own history and culture. 

Get ready for an exciting week-long archaeological adventure, taking action in defense of the country’s heritage whilst discovering beautiful Tuscany. You will truly be making a positive impact by ensuring the heritage stays where it belongs.

The Project

Preserving & Protecting Artifacts

Students will be preserving cultural heritage for the local people of Livorno, as well as for visitors and historians. This way locals can reconnect with the historical site and better understand their cultural identity – at no cost to them! 

The aim of this project is to protect artifacts in the excavation sites, and preserve them for the local community to enjoy and connect with as a means to understanding their heritage. Students will be excavating, cataloging and documenting Etruscan and Roman artifacts in an open-access living museum for both archaeologists and the public. The entire project is carried out in an environmentally and ecologically responsible way.

This CLS Trip integrates the following UN SDGs:

We at CAS Trips strive to develop conscientious young global citizens, who experience new cultures and adventures whilst implementing the UN Sustainable Development Goals UN Sustainable Development Goals.
