It was the first workshop to be held at the University of Siena with this focus, with speakers discussing the importance of museums and archaeological activities for wellbeing and the problems associated with carrying out such activities. The event was attended by 30-35 students, professors and researchers. The workshop was organised within the framework of the collaboration with the University of Siena, which supports the activities carried out by LOGGIA in Vignale, and within the strategy of the Department of History and Cultural Heritage as “Department of Excellence 2023-2027”.
