On March 16, 2018, an international media forum dedicated to the implementation of the project "Cultural Legacy of Uzbekistan in world collections" was held in Tashkent.

 

The uniqueness of the project lies in the fact that for the first time a complete factual database is being created about the cultural values of Uzbekistan stored in world collections in the format of books-albums in three languages, as well as video versions that create a consistent virtual image of the monuments of history and culture of our country.

 

"The work carried out in Uzbekistan by President Shavkat Mirziyoyev to preserve and popularize cultural heritage is large-scale and unprecedented. The created conditions, as well as the consolidation of state, public organizations and socially responsible business, allow us to implement the only project of this kind in the world, which undoubtedly serves not only as scientific material for scientists, but also is a kind of spiritual food for the younger generation.", - said Firdavs Abdukhalikov, Chairman of the World Society for Study, Preservation and Popularization of Cultural Legacy of Uzbekistan. 

 

Within the framework of the project, 16 films have already been shot, combining cultural artifacts of Uzbekistan stored in famous world collections, and 10 volumes of album books have been released, which in the amount of 1.5 thousand copies have once again been donated to leading national and world libraries at this media forum.

 

In 2018, it is also planned to publish facsimile copies of the lifetime manuscripts of Alisher Navoi, stored in British, Russian and French libraries, the collection "Zafarname" with colorful miniatures of the victories of the Middle Ages Amir Timur and others.

 

At the current media forum, the prospects of the project for the publication of 20 new books-albums about the cultural values of Uzbekistan, which are in the collections of museums in Great Britain, Germany, Russia, the USA, Turkey, the Czech Republic, France, Japan, are outlined.

 

The first part of the books from the new series will be presented at a special congress in St. Petersburg, which the organizers plan to hold with the support of the oilfield services company "ERIELL GROUP" in June this year. During the congress, which will bring together 300 world scientists, exhibitions showing collections of Uzbekistan's cultural heritage will be opened in the leading museums of St. Petersburg.
