Abstract (in English)

The magic date 2000 which not only closes the old and opens the new centuries but also the millennia, places requires us - as conservators - to consider the position we have reached in our discipline, and with what baggage of mistakes and what assets of experience we enter the twenty-first century. This question must be - and is - asked above all by ICOMOS. This is witnessed by increasing discussion in recent years both at a regional and international level on the theoretical basis of conservation. Our first General Assembly this century should become a forum for the summarising of the changes which have taken place in conservation doctrine. Let the thoughts presented below serve as a step in this direction
