About us

SOS Archivi is an association that brings together professionals from the archival sector with the aim of promoting the culture of prevention and emergency management.

We believe in networking as the best way to prevent and deal with accidents that could damage archives, libraries and harm our cultural heritage.

SOS Archivi’s objective is to become the main point of reference, for the public and private sectors, to create and institutionalize the operational process of protection of the national and international archival heritage. Through its networking activity, SOS Archivi can also offer immediate intervention in emergency situations with a range of selected and trusted specialists.

The SOS Archivi project was originally established to deal with environmental risks, increased dramatically in recent years, and with the main objective of the maintenance and recovery of the archival heritage.
