The main objective of the congress is to exchange the experience acquired, both at international and national level, in the field of speleological and speleo-underwater research of artificial hypogea (man-made underground structures of archaeological-historical interest), and to promote the preservation of subterranean historical and cultural heritage.
The congress will focus on international thematic sessions dealing with the speleological research undertaken during shared archaeological field missions; international standards in place including the adoption of cartographic symbols and a dictionary; the newly established Web site (UIS) linking to the Registry of Artificial Cavities and the comparison between different typologies of artificial hypogea, which have been extensively studied. Other thematic sessions include an overview of the legislation in different countries, potential scaling up of internationally important Italian projects on hypogea, such as the Map of Ancient Aqueducts and the magazine Opera Ipogea – Journal of Speleology in Artificial Cavities.
