The BRAU Biennale, now in its sixth edition, is still today the only official international structure that allows for a permanent international FORUM on the restoration of the built heritage, aimed at the conservation, redevelopment and reinvention of architectural and urban spaces. This periodic cultural event has an official headquarters in Italy, is structured with a strongly interdisciplinary perspective that addresses multiform aspects of theoretical definition and aspects related to the sustainable use of restoration technologies, both those of the past and the more innovative ones. The BRAU Biennale was born from a careful analysis of all the aspects (cultural, social, economic and technical) that govern the processes of conservation and transformation of the built heritage in an integrated way and, at the same time, conserve values, resources and documents that meet the main needs and expectations of direct users.

Dear Coordinators of Biennial BRAU5 and Presidents of Hypatia International Award, We are all living a new and difficult experience that makes us worry about our health, that of our affections and our future. Despite this, all collaborators and volunteers of CICOP Italia and me, we are determined to continue organizing the next Biennale BRAU5 and the events connected to it with the same enthusiasm that distinguishes us. But this new challenge that puts us in front of an invisible and so dangerous enemy, forces us to make some changes to the programming of our activities related to BRAU5 and the events connected to it. We just want to let you know that it is necessary to move the date of BRAU5 from 15-30 October 2020 to 15-30 April 2021. We think you will all agree. We will all continue to work with the same tenacity to organize this important international cultural event involving 7 different countries on 4 continents and we invite you to stay in touch with us as planned a year ago. An affectionate hug to all of You. Nina Avramidou
