Summer School includes a program of multi-disciplinary studies
within one week. The School will be held at the Department of
Chemistry of the University of Pisa, and is designed to train
graduated students (Master’s degree), in particular PhD
students, with interests in Heritage Science. The Summer
school aims at providing students from different educational
backgrounds (graduates in the fields of technical-scientific
and humanistic) the specific skills to start and develop
projects for proper diagnosis and conservative management of
Cultural Heritage. The school provides lessons to transmit
knowledge for the characterization of materials, for the
techniques suitable for their characterization, for the
assessment of their state of alteration. Special attention
will be paid to the study of products and technologies to be
used in conservation. Each year the School will be dedicated
to a different topic within Heritage Science. In 2018, the
school will be focused on materials and problems encountered
in the conservation of modern and contemporary art.
