Announcement for the Meeting after 40 years of the International Assembly of Albanological Studies
 After 40 years, the Academy of Sciences of Albania and that of Kosovo have convened the International Assembly of Albanological Studies, which conducts its work in three days. 180 scholars of albanology, local and foreign meet again in Tirana to discuss the latest achievements in Albanology

Academician Pëllumb Xhufi, said that “in these four decades that separate us from the last Assembly, great changes have taken place in Albanology. "There has been a generational change." Then, the head of the Academy of Sciences, Skënder Gjinushi, said that "the openness and freedom gained enables the separation from schematic and ideological treatments".

Mehmet Kraja, head of the Kosovo Academy, noted that: "fostering a critical spirit in Albanological studies would help knowledge to be restructured and create new impacts. While the Frenchman Pierre Cabain is trying to bring to Albania the library of the Archaeologist, Leon Rey; Lucia Nadin from Italy, who has discovered the "Statues of Drishti", talked about other research.

"What is fascinating me now is the image of Albania in Venetian art. The miracle is to find Albania in the great painters of 1800. I found a large painting almost two by 3 meters, where you find the connections of Albania and Shkodra with Italy. "It's time for Pashko Vaso to come to Venice," said Lucia Nadin. But are Albanological studies quotable in the world and therefore credible? Academician Shaban Sinani said that "we have researchers who are personalities", while Mehmet Kraja said that "we have complexes, and we value foreigners more".
