Even if the sector in general appears to be in a bit of a crisis, there are still quite a number of fairs organized on conservation, in Italy and in the world. In our country, this year there will be two within a few months.
In the International Restoration Fair in Ferrara, (18th to 20th September), the eye-catching theme is the project RESTAURO MADE IN ITALY
The goal is to maintain international visibility and reiterate Italy as one of the world’s reference points. The fair will also be associated with the first edition of the Restoration Week, which will see the launch of the APT (Association of Preservation Technologies) – European Chapter. A new European network for the restoration and enhancement of cultural heritage. We also signal the interesting conference “The meaning and marketing of restoration in Italy and target Countries: an overview”, on Thursday 19th, where the meaning of the term “restoration” in the various countries and cultures will be discussed.
The appointment with the Florence Art and Restoration Fair is from 13 to 15 May 2020, at Palazzo dei Congressi.
Also this year Heritech – the Future of Heritage Science and Technology – scientific conference, will be organized in the same period and place of the trade show and this is why Art-Test has chosen to participate in this event.
The 1st edition of FLORENCE HERI-TECH – The Future of Heritage Science and Technologies, two years ago, welcomed leading researchers and scholars from all over the world to present and discuss innovative techniques and technologies. The proposed contributions were 180, with the involvement of public institutions, universities, companies and museums. Art-Test Florence, which has always actively participated in research, had presented 4 papers, and was awarded “for the commitment and constant study in the search for new scientific approaches” with the Palazzo Spinelli Award “Research and Development of new technologies qualified for cultural heritage“.
We are still preparing the contribution for the 2020 edition, and knowing that Florence will become the international heart of restoration and cultural heritage, we will be proud to be part of it.
