Italy- Bosnia – Conservation institute goes on mission to Sarajevo

A delegation from Italy’s Higher Institute for Conservation and Restoration (ISCR) went on its first mission to Sarajevo, led by the head of the training school, Donatella Cavezzali. The purpose of the trip was to initiate a joint project with the National Museum of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The initiative was promoted at the suggestion of Foreign Minister Paolo Gentiloni, has been allocated 40,000 euros of Italian government funding, and implemented after the coming into force of a bilateral cooperation agreement on culture, education and sports. Its aim is to organise specialised conservation and restoration training courses which, in this first phase, will focus on the Museum’s collections of metal artefacts.

Organise specialised conservation and restoration training courses

Alongside the “train the trainers” activities conducted by Italian experts, the ISCR will provide equipment to set up a specialised workshop, which will be the nucleus of the future Conservation and Restoration Centre to be established at the National Museum. The project also includes training courses in Italy that Minister of Culture Dario Franceschini proposed during his recent visit to Sarajevo. “The Higher Institute for Conservation and Restoration in Rome today concluded a first mission to the National Museum, following the agreement signed with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs under the cultural agreement between Italy and Bosnia,” said Italian Ambassador to Bosnia-Herzegovina, Ruggero Corrias. “The aim of our experts is to increase the Museum’s capacity and resources so that the country’s first conservation and restoration centre can be created there,” he added.
