Prima che l’Impensabile Succede un Altra Volta

Prima che l’Impensabile Succede un Altra Volta

Una discussione internazionale sulla necessita' di una ricerca sulla mitigazione sismica e le sue applicazioni per i beni culturali.
Se le statistiche sono corrette, molti dei centri culturali del mondo si confronteranno con forti terremoti nei primi decenni del 21 secolo. Molti di questi hanno gia' subito recentemente gli effetti di eventi sismici significativi (il terremoto avvenuto in Abruzzo, regione dell'Italia e' solo un esempio). Poiche' il tempo non e' favorevole alla conservazione, un'azione immediata e' fondamentale.

Call for papers for a conference to be held at the National Museum of Denmark in Copenhagen, May 13-16 2013 entitled "Conservation in the Nineteenth Century"

The conservation profession has its roots in the intellectual movements of the first half of the 19th century, which followed the Enlightenment. Scholarly study of objects made available by important archeological excavations and discoveries gave birth to the first debates on theoretical issues of preservation. Also playing a significant role in conservation practice were political events disrupting Europe in the first decades of the 19th century, in particular, Napoleon’s appropriation of works of art.

Digital Prints: Identification and Preservation - A Masterclass with Martin Jürgens

20|21 Conservação e Restauro, a Portuguese contemporary art conservation studio, has invited Martin Jürgens to teach a 4 day course aimed at professional conservators.

Digital prints are omnipresent today in professional photography, art, archives, but also in everyday life. The different printing techniques and the materials of the many different kinds of prints can be difficult to tell apart, however. And how should digital prints be included in museum databases, mounted for exhibition, housed for storage, or even restored?
