CeSMAP – Centro Studi e Museo d’Arte Preistorica (Study Centre and Museum of Prehistoric Art) was founded in1964 under the aim of promoting research in two main fields: rock art and the evolution of the pre- and proto-historic population on the Western Alps through the research of their material culture.
At the same time, CeSMAP publishes the “Survey” international journal, whose contents are revised by the UNESCO-ICOM Documentation Centre. It is a founding member of the International Federation Rock Art Organitation (IFRAO) and also works on the promotion of archaeological and anthropological exhibitions and rock art fieldwork.
