We just delivered a 5 days training program for Monash University, Australia and Malaysia campuses, in the Monash University Prato Center in Italy. 23 international students from Asia and Australia learned our practical 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. 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. This was the 2md year for this course, see the 2015 post.
Students practiced with Pigments Checker and tested examination methods using our Technical-Photography-kit, Gorgias – Reflectance Spectrometer for Art, Antonello – Multispectral Imaging system and panoramic infrared reflectography.
