ArmInfo. The program on creation of a Restoration Center will be
launched in September 2010, Armenian Culture Minister Hasmik Poghosyan
told ArmInfo correspondent.
She recalled that in January 2010 an agreement was signed with the
Italian government on grant provision. Poghosyan said that the first
tranche of the grant was doubled to 1 mln EUR. "We are glad to say that
the Italian party promised to provide us with every possible support
in implementation of the program on creation of the Restoration
Center",- she said. The Center will operate on the basis of other
establishments. For instance, a center for restoration of frescoes
will be launched at the Erebouni Reserve Museum, and a center for
restoration of cultural values – at the National Gallery.
The future Center will be actively engaged in education activities.
