The event is scheduled for today and Tuesday when 20 international experts will meet behind closed doors at the Torso Palace to lay the groundwork for the recommendations.

The meeting is coordinated by the Unesco Chair of the University of Friuli, directed by Stefano Grimaz, and organized in collaboration with the International Center for Mechanical Sciences (CISM). The two-day event will be attended by experts working in Unesco chairs from various countries in the Central European area, in various United Nations agencies, in national and regional civil protection, and researchers from the National Institute of Oceanography and Experimental Geophysics (Ogs) in Trieste.
