In Ferrara to discuss the future of this discipline
During the next edition of the Restoration Fair in Ferrara, held from May 6-9, 2015, Art-Test will be present in a stand shared with partners and collaborators of AIAr (Italian Association of Archeometry) as well as at a meeting on Friday, May 8th, titled: “Are there jobs in science for cultural heritage? A network between research, business and government. ”
The problem is strongly felt by the industry and by many who see in these disciplines an opportunity for growth for the protection of our cultural heritage, and also the scientific profile of a field where Italy has been for long a benchmark but is currently facing economic difficulties.
During this event the AIAr Network of companies will be presented, an initiative born last year to reduce the gap between institutions and companies, to promote cooperation, interoperability and joint research.
The meeting comes at the conclusion of a path where AIAr has been proposed as a reference point of a virtuous network of public and private entities operating in the cultural heritage sector, by promoting a program of meetings with companies, in order to increase the exchange of knowledge and expertise between the various players in the areas of diagnostics, conservation, enhancement and exploitation of cultural heritage and at the same time evaluate possible collaborations and joint projects.
We invite you to participate and support this initiative!
The annual Restoration Fair Ferrara will open again from 6 to 9 May 2015!

The advanced technology of the Multilayer® method has received growing interest, as well as the new device for microclimate monitoring, the GasLogger.
Manufactured by ExtraSolution Srl Capannori (LU) and distributed by Art-Test Florence, the tiny GasLogger (4,2 x 4,2 x 3,8 cm) is able to achieve the same performance of competing devices but with many additional advantages. At competitive costs, it is able to measure, record and wirelessly transmit the oxygen concentration, relative humidity and temperature, of any packaging, even non-transparent ones, also simultaneously on multiple samples. There is no need for wiring, it is therefore of immediate use in both anoxia treatments and for any existing display case, as well as in any environment that requires microclimate control.
Please feel free to contact us for more detailed information.
