Art of Restoration Course description:

Students with good skills and passion for history and art will plunge into the world of the restoration as they learn methodologies, tools, criteria, and techniques. The course provides a broad-spectrum approach on the various theoretical disciplines that interact with each other, as well as the tools to delve more deeply together or personally into the issues that students are passionate about. In a world made up almost exclusively of “images”, students will discover the pleasure of “touching” the matter. To know and recognize from a collection of disorganized pieces, students will recreate objects like a puzzle, a vase or a whole pot.

Students will discover that a good restoration requires a good mind and good hands. But above all, students will learn that the restoration is not an “exact science,” but that each object (although they look very similar to another), by its nature and living history, are a unique and unrepeatable.
