This master aims to prepare applicants who intend to work in the sector of Cultural Heritage. Students will have the opportunity to develop a pragmatic and practical approach to the themes relating to cultural heritage, preservation and conservation through a series of hands-on experiences at restoration sites and laboratories combined with the direct study of artworks and practical internship sessions in enterprises and institutions.
In the sector of study and management of Historical and Cultural Heritage, the themes of conservation and restoration have a strong and prominent role: Cultural Heritage preservation is our responsibility. Urban artefacts, ecclesiastical artworks, public institution furniture or museum artefacts need proper preservation, conservation and evaluation strategies. Despite these clear needs, art historians and technicians working in this sector sometimes do not receive, as part of their academic education and training, adequate instruments for a correct interpretation of a work of art’s state of deterioration or risk factors. They are often not well instructed about the most proper procedures for artwork maintenance and conservation and for the work of co-ordination of the restoration process....
