The Triumphal Arch at the G7 Summit

On March 30th & 31st, Florence will host the annual gathering of G7 culture ministers. This year’s theme for the G7 conclave is cultural heritage preservation. Fittingly, the organizers of the event have asked the IDA to install its reconstruction of Palmyra’s Triumphal Arch in conjunction with the meeting. The arch is installed in the Piazza della Signoria where it will stand alongside Michelangelo’s great masterpieces, David and Neptune. The arch will be on display from March 27th to April 27th, and was officially unveiled at 10:00am on March 27th, by the Mayor of Florence. A large range of educational and interpretive events, as well as concerts and schools programs, are planned to coincide with the installation.
