We just delivered a 4 days training program for Monash University, Australia and Malaysia campuses, in the Monash University Prato Center in Italy. 11 awesome students learned our affordable and sustainable methods for art examination and they were involved in field projects in Prato and Florence. We taught the first week of “Diagnostics for Cultural Heritage“, a course organized by Prof Seracini at Editech.
“Diagnostics for Cultural Heritage” is a lecture course with case studies analysis and field sessions, covering techniques and methodologies applied to the field of Diagnostics of Cultural Heritage. Students were introduced to the use of state-of-the-art technologies and participate in field studies in Florence and Prato on paintings, architectural monuments and archaeological sites.
The unit covered five main topics:
- Diagnostic multi-spectral imaging
- Analytical Diagnostics
- 3D Scanning
- Geophysical survey
This two-week course introduced participants to the fascinating yet very complex field of Conservation Science applied to Art, Architecture and Archaeology and allows them to have the opportunity to be directly involved in studies on CH artefacts in a lab environment and in the field, using state of the art technologies.
