Italy to help restore Kerta Ghosa complex in Klungkung

The Italian embassy will launch a restoration effort on the Kerta Ghosa complex in Klungkung, in cooperation with several other parties on May 30, an official report said.

The effort would be made in cooperation with the Klungkung District head, the Italian Institute of Culture and the Bali Purnati Foundation

During the event, the embassy would also hold a multi-media event, according to press statement issued by the Italian embassy here recently.

The restoration would focus on the "Justice Pavilion" and the refurbishment of the Museum wing hosting the works of the Italio-Balinese artist Emilio Ambron.

The cooperation stems from a sisterhood pact established over a decade ago between the art city of Firenze and Klungkung, which was the capital of a Balinese district during the Majapahit kingdom period.

The event, which will be open to the Italian community in Bali as well as Balinese authorities and citizens of Klungkung, will be filmed by film director Garin Nugroho, who is a member of the Jury of the Venezia film festival 2009.

Italy organized a multi-faith cultural conference in Rome, March 4, 2009, which was attended by among others the Indonesian foreign affairs minister
