  • Projects and is in charge of the intervention works
  • Executes the conservation and restoration interventions
  • Manages and coordinates other operators dealing with complementary activities in restoration
  • Deals with research, experimental and teaching activities connected to conservation and restoration

Graduates can find a job in Restoration Workshops and Companies, in professional organizations and institutions, research organizations and public bodies dealing with Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage (Monuments and Fine Arts Offices, Museums, Libraries …).

 The degree is recognized by Italian national system with validity for the professional practice in conservation.

The course is made in cooperation, through an agreement, with the Centre for Conservation and Restoration La Venaria Reale which hosts all the activities, practical and theoretical, of the students.
