The new partnership that must be established between heritage and tourism depends in large measure on enlightened mediators who can reconcile a host of divergent viewpoints and approaches. And, according to Milagro Gómez de Blavia, who better to play this role than the museum professional, who is both heritage custodian and communicator? The author, a Venezuelan solicitor, is founder and director of the Museum of Barquisimeto since 1982. A former president of ICOM-Venezuela, she is a specialist in tourism and administrative law, and acts as adviser and lecturer on international courses in museum management and harmonious relations between tourism and heritage. She is also president of a city-funded public company in Barquisimeto, Estado Lara, Venezuela, one of whose main programmes involves recognizing the worth of the architectural heritage.
