Course info
The single cycle degree course in Cultural Heritage Conservation and Restoration is held in collaboration with the Regional Department for Cultural Heritage and Identity of Sicily, through the Regional Centre for Design and Restoration. It is designed to train graduates, providing them with profile corresponding to the professional qualification of Restorer of Cultural Heritage, in accordance to the art. 29 of Legislative Decree 42/ 04 and subsequent amendments in all six ministerial specialisations. The educational objective is, therefore, to train, in the six curricula, graduates able to work with operational and decision-making autonomy to identify the state of conservation of artefacts, to implement preventive, maintenance and restoration measures, limiting the degradation process of the constituent materials and ensuring their preservation contextualizing the artistic and cultural value of the works. The training is based on humanistic, scientific and technical subjects and involves the study of artistic techniques in their historical context, of the materials and methods for their knowledge and conservation, and for the control and prevention of the degradation processes. The following criteria underlie the educational programme: - to give, to the necessary scientific and historical-artistic subjects, an appropriate number of credits; - to provide enough time to for practical restoration activities, through workshops and practical training in educational yards; - To limit the number of examinations to the extent permitted by the deep integrated interdisciplinary nature of the degree program, the integrate courses guarantee methodological and cultural consistency.
Universities and public and private research agencies, institutions of the Ministry of Cultural and artistic heritage (superintendence. Museums, libraries, archives, etc.), restoration laboratories, companies and professional organisations in the field of cultural heritage diagnostics, conservation and restoration. Through the participation to specific Phd Programmes, they may also carry out research activities at Universities and public and private research institutions.
By passing the final examination, the qualification of Conservator and Restorer of Cultural Heritage is awarded. Therefore, the final examination consists of two parts: the first one is a practical laboratory test, while the second, theoretical-methodological part consists of the discussion of a written paper related to a conservation plan chosen during the practice period and developed independently. Candidates who do not pass the first part of the final examination, might repeat it during the following session. The final examination is public and it is evaluated by a special Board consisting of seven members appointed by the Rector, two members appointed by the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and two members appointed by the Ministry of Education.
