Diagnosis in Heritage Science: 6. Focus on Organic Materials


The Summer School offers a one-week multidisciplinary program held at the Department of Chemistry at the University of Pisa.
It is designed to train graduate students, particularly those pursuing a PhD degree, who have an interest in Heritage Science.
The primary goal of the Summer School is to equip students from diverse educational backgrounds, both those with technical-scientific and humanistic degrees, with the specific skills required to initiate and develop projects focused on the proper diagnosis and conservative management of Cultural Heritage.
The Summer School will provide lectures to impart knowledge on the characterization of organic materials, suitable techniques for their analysis, and the evaluation of their state of deterioration. Additionally, the curriculum will include a thorough examination of products and technologies used in conservation.

Program and schedule are available for download at the bottom of this webpage.


The main aim is to furnish students with a comprehensive training, encompassing deep insights into chemistry of organic materials and diagnostic techniques, along with the capacity to analyze issues and challenges concerning the characterization of objects within the scope of multidisciplinary projects.
