Experts on the conservation of Italian works of art will soon take centre stage in Argentina. On the occasion of the 4th International Meeting on Preventive and Interventive Conservation in Museums, Archives and Libraries, the Museo Histórico Nacional del Cabildo of Buenos Aires – in conjunction with the Italian Institute of Culture – has scheduled two lectures at the Salón Dorado of the Legislatura Porteña. The first will be held on Monday, April 4, and the second on Thursday, April 7. The key speakers at both events will be two Italian experts: Oriana Sartiani and Letizia Montalbano. The events will be open to students, professionals and specialists who devote their everyday working life to the preservation of the assets of museums, libraries and archives, and will be attended by world-renowned international professionals. Oriana Sartiani, a graduate of the Opificio delle Pietre Dure (OPD) of Florence, has a university degree in Restoration and Conservation Technologies and is Head of the Restoration Department of the Florence-based OPD. She has participated in the restoration of artworks by Vasari, Donatello, Mantegna and Caravaggio and has worked for international Institutions.
