Andy Pratt is a visiting Professor at University of Torino (the city that gave us Fiat cars, Lavazza coffee, and chocolate hazelnut praline), he gave a series of lectures for ILO/UNESCO/University of Torino on the creative economy and policy for MA in “World Heritage at Work”/”Cultural Projects for Development” 12-13th September. Andy is a visiting professor on this programme which attracts international students engaged in policy and practice work for conservation bodies, especially the World Heritage Organisation. Other visiting professors include Xavier Greffe (Sorbonne), Allan Scott (UCLA) and David Throsby (Macquarie), and Walter Santagatta (Turin). The programme is approved and sponsored by the ILO and UNESCO.
