Visit Villa La Pietra Conservation Studio to find out how conservation contributes to our knowledge of the collections in aspects of manufacture, meaning and context. Working alongside curators, scientists and researchers, we’ve revealed many new discoveries.
By understanding a wide range of materials found in archaeological, historical works and household objects, and the mechanisms by which objects deteriorate, we can address their stabilization and long-term preservation.
Our conservation specialists preserve the Museum’s Collection through a combination of preventive, interventive, and analytical techniques. Conservation contributes to our knowledge of the collections in aspects of manufacture, meaning and context.
Presentation of projects, to then be discussed over a light lunch.
