Program description

Science and Technology for the Conservation of Cultural Heritage

The Study programs, that 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 analyse 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. The multidisciplinary nature of the cultural heritage field calls for a variety of programss which 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 specialisation in general disciplines. Training is completed by means of internships at university scientific labs or at public and private bodies of the field.
