Minister for Cultural Assets and Activities

Minister for Cultural Assets and Activities

The Minister for Cultural Assets and Activities (Italian - "Ministero per i Beni e le Attività Culturali") is the culture minister of the Republic of Italy. It is based at 27 via del Collegio Romano, Rome, and the current minister is Sandro Bondi.

It was set up in 1974 as the Ministry for the Cultural Assets and Environments ("Ministero per i Beni Culturali ed Ambientali ") by Giovanni Spadolini through the decree read on 14 December 1974, n. 657, converted (with changes) from the law of 29 January 1975, n. 5. The new ministry (defined as "per i beni culturali" - that is "for" cultural assets, showing the wish to create a mainly technical organ) largely has the remit and functions previously under the Ministry of Public Education (specifically its Antiquity and Fine Arts, and Academies and Libraries, sections). To this remit and functions it some of those of the Ministry of the Interior (State archives) and of the President of the Council of Ministers (state computer archives, publishing and diffusion of culture).

Legislative decree number 368 of 20 October 1998 set up the Ministero per i Beni e le Attività Culturali, with all the old ministry's remits as well as some new ones:
*promotion of sports and sports arenas
*promotion of shows, in all their forms

In 2006, the sport portfolio was reassigned to the new Dipartimento per le Politiche Giovanili e le Attività Sportive.

The ministry is principally concenrned with culture, shows, the protection and preservation of artistic sites and property, landscape, and tourism (as set out by the decree read on 18 May 2006 n. 181). At the end of 2006 the ministry's departments were abolished and their responsibilities returned to the ministry itself. At present, its organisational and administrative structures are the subjects of serious revision and discussion as to proposed modifications (the latest of which was tabled in June 2007).
