The master will guide you to a different approach to art and the artwork, explaining which are the fundamental steps to achieve a thorough assessment. The journey will start from a correct Condition Report, where we will consider all the components of the artwork: the support (canvas, table, paper ), the frame and the pictorial materials (preparation, priming, pictorial film, possible retouches). Effectively drafting this type of documentation, together with correctly interpreting the problems that are proposed in investigating each specific artwork, will be the starting point of a well-designed diagnostic project.
Cutting-edge scientific instrumentation and knowledge of the limits and possibilities of each instrument will do the rest.
Great importance will be given to scientific sources and artistic literature, as indispensable tools for the correct reading of scientific data.
