Master's Degree in Science and Technology for the Conservation of Cultural Heritage

General

Program Description

The Study Program, which has a two-year duration and is provided in two curricula (in Italian and in English), aims to train experts in the field of cultural heritage conservation and archaeometry. They will be able to analyze conservation problems and to detect deterioration processes thanks to their knowledge of the physical, chemical, and structural properties of materials, as well as to identify any possible remedies.

Practicing Self Care

In particular, conservation scientists acquire the following skills:

  • planning of diagnostics interventions with special regard to the identification of methods, materials, measurements, and techniques for the conservation and restoration of cultural heritage;
  • full planning of diagnostics protocols for the conservation of cultural heritage;
  • planning and organization of science museums, science cities, science exhibitions;
  • collaboration with the planning and implementation of IT systems for cultural heritage data treatment.

The multidisciplinary nature of the cultural heritage field calls for a variety of programs that allows to meet the scientific and professional requirements of such field and provides at the same time a group of courses to complete the humanities education and to offer specialization in general disciplines.

Training is completed by means of internships at university scientific labs or at public and private bodies of the field.
