Bam Citadel to Host Adobe Workshop




24 September 2005


A team consisting of Italian and Iranian experts will hold training classes for preservation and restoration of adobe sites in Bam Citadel in February/March 2006.

Restoration and preservation of adobe structures is a new domain, therefore experts of the Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization of Iran have faced many problems in this regard.

“Iranian and Italian experts will hold two training courses for preservation and restoration of adobe sites in Bam Citadel at the end of the coming winter,” said Eskandar Mokhtari, head of Bam Salvation Project.

Mokhtari explained that based on meetings held by the attendance of the Italian team during this week, the classes will be held for experts and craftsmen both in theory and practice.

By the time the classes are held, the restoration of one of the towers of Bam Citadel, its Tekieh (the place for holding religious ceremonies), and Sistani house is expected to be finished.

Mokhtari described these classes as a valuable opportunity for the trainees.

The earthen city of Bam is one for the most important historical and cultural cities in the world which dates back to 2000 years ago. The site was almost destroyed in the earthuake that hit the area in 2003. Bam and its cultural landscape were registered on World Heritage List of UNESCO in 2004.
