Course Title SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING FOR THE CONSERVATION OF CULTURAL HERITAGE
Course Type Mono-Disciplinary Course
Credits (CFU / ECTS) 5.0
Semester Second Semester
Course Description The aim of this course is to show to the students the crucial role that science and engineering can play on the broad and very complex world of Cultural Heritage knowledge and conservation. A wide range of artefacts will be covered including historical, artistic, architectural, and archaeological patrimony. The course presents the main characteristics and deterioration phenomena of the materials that constitute the different types of artefacts such as: historical architecture and buildings; polychrome artefacts like mural paintings, easel and canvas paintings; sculptures; ornamental objects; archaeological remains; objects and artefacts of modern and contemporary art. Another important aspect is the diagnostic and monitoring of the artefacts in order to properly assess the state of conservation and the cause of deterioration. During the course special attention will be given to non-invasive and micro-destructive characterisation methods and to the protocols to be used in order to gain the maximum information with the minimum sampling. After a correct diagnosis a proper method and materials for the conservation need to be chosen. These aspect are also part of the course. The main conservation materials and methodologies will be briefly introduced throughout the examination of well-known national and international case studies. The course is composed of lectures (4cf) and laboratory experiences (1cf).
