The fight against illicit trafficking of cultural objects is not only a priority, but also a collective responsibility.


Illicit trafficking of cultural property is a scourge that is constantly expanding and taking on new forms. Fighting it is more than a mere political commitment priority. The twentieth anniversary of the 1995 Convention provides an opportunity to assess the significance, the distinctive features and operational aspects of this normative instrument and its interaction with others, including the 1970 UNESCO Convention on the Means of Prohibiting and Preventing the Illicit Import, Export and Transfer of Ownership of Cultural Property and the 2014 European Directive on the return of cultural objects unlawfully removed from the territory of a Member State.


It is important, in this context to acknowledge that essential rules are already in place, and that focus is now required in ensuring that they are better known and applied.


 Under the patronage of the Ministero dei Beni Culturali e delle Attività Culturali e del Turismo and with the support of the Société internationale pour la recherche sur le droit du patrimoine culturel et le droit de l'art
