Argentina – Italian restoration technology takes centre stage

The contribution of Italian technology and scientific innovation to the conservation of artistic and architectural heritage will be the focus of a conference in Argentina on June 23 at the Facultad de Bellas Artes de la Universidad Nacional (UNLP) in La Plata. The conference will be curated by Italian experts Alessandro Zanini and Andrea Griletto, respectively the president and the director of the Italian Association for Architectural, Artistic and Urban Restoration (Assorestauro). The association is the first between service providers, specialised companies, and producers of materials, equipment, and technology, established to represent tangible heritage restoration and conservation industries at both national and international level. It is a point of reference for those who wish to explore, in the broadest possible terms, the world of conservation in Italy as the synthesis of various convergent disciplines. The conference was organised by the Italian Consulate General in La Plata in association with the Italian Trade Agency (ITA) and the Facultad de Bellas Artes de la Universidad Nacional de La Plata. It is also part of the initiatives under the Year of Italy in Latin America, a project promoted by the Italian Foreign Ministry in partnership with the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism and the Ministry of Economic Development, the foreign trade agency ICE, the Conference of Italian University Rectors, and with the contribution of numerous businesses. It aims to promote Italian talents in Latin America as well as Italy’s cultural, economic, scientific, and technological identity.
