The UNESCO World Heritage Centre, in collaboration with the Centro Camuno per i Studi Preistorici (CCSP) and the Ministero per i Beni et le Attività Culturali, organised a workshop from 23-23 May 2007, financed by the Spanish Funds-in-Trust entitled ‘Managing Rock Art World Heritage Sites' with the participation of invited Rock Art experts from around the world to present new developments and case studies in the area of rock art management. During the workshop participants presented case studies and research in the field of rock art paintings and engravings.
The World Heritage List has a particularly rich record of rock art. The principle purpose of this meeting was to examine how to address global issues of rock art preservation.
Participants in the UNESCO workshop also had the opportunity to visit the World Heritage site of Rock Drawings in Valcamonica (Italy) and observe the management measures put in place, as well as visit the site museum and educational centre.
